Electro-pop stars MGMT are under pressure from their record label to change their musical style following the release of their last album, CELEBRATION.

ContactMusic has gotten the name wrong of this album from the very first time they wrote anything about it. They've written many articles on MGMT, and have called it "Celebration" in each one. Even when they quote Andrew as calling it "Congratulations". Retards.

Mgmt Forced To Change Style After Album Flop

Electro-pop stars MGMT are under pressure from their record label to change their musical style following the release of their last album, CELEBRATION.

The band shot to fame upon the release of their 2007 offering Oracular Spectacular, which landed them a Grammy Award nomination for Best New Artist, while their track Kids also received a nod.

The duo released the follow-up Congratulations in April (10), but the musicians admit bosses at their Columbia label were less than impressed with their new sound and have vowed to take tighter control of their next album.

Andrew Van-Wyngarden tells Scotland's Daily Record newspaper, "I definitely think our music will change in the future because Congratulations is almost two years old now. We have some ideas and have been talking about possible directions of where to go next.

"We are just in much more positive mental states than when we wrote Congratulations. We're less anxious. We've been looking at relationships with the label during the recording process and it's quite different this time. They'll be more involved and not give us as much freedom."

I'M CALLING BULLLLLLLLLLL SHHHITTTTTTT!!!!!!!!

OK. Earlier today, I saw a adaptation of this article on the website of a portuguese music magazine and they cited the Daily Record as the author of the original news article. It's a little longer and also contains some typos. So, here it is:

MGMT set to go back to basics after poor reception to current album
Sep 25 2010 Bev Lyons

BROOKLYN duo MGMT say they are being pressured to make a very different third album following poor sales of their last psychedelic release.

The band admit label bosses will not be giving them as much creative space to write new material after their spaced-out e orts on Congratulations.

Andrew Van-Wyngarden and Ben Goldwasser impressed critics with their 2008 debut Oracular Spectacular and anthems such as Time To Pretend, Kids and Electric Feel, which also earned them a Grammy.

But it all went a bit pear-shaped with the next record, which went down a completely different route.

Andrew told the Razz: "I definitely think our music will change in the future because Congratulations is almost two years old now.

"We have some ideas and have been talking about possible directions of where to go next.

"We are just in much more positive mental states than when we wrote Congratulations.

"We're less anxious. We've been looking at relationships with the label during the recording process and it's quite di erent this time.

"They'll be more involved and not give us as much freedom."

e band are touring the UK and played Glasgow earlier this week but Andrew is already keen to o er more variety next time round.

He added: "We are pretty conservative or tight when we are writing songs.

"We didn't have a surplus of songs last time, perhaps as a way to control the nal cut but maybe that will change."

The guys enjoyed playing Glasgow's Barrowlands on Monday but admit they lost some of the crowd at one point when they played their marathon 14 minute long B-side Metanoia.

Andrew said: "We played it and people at the show that are into that side of the band really love it and people who just go to hear Kids just left. It was the second-last song so it was okay."

The duo admit they've often been left worse for wear before shows here because they have partied with some local pals.

Andrew admitted: "The last time we played at Barrowlands, I'd been at a party and didn't sleep at all the night before. I was like a zombie on stage."

I guess we'll never have another movement of true, honest music ever again. I mean, with that type of pressure, no musician will be a real one in the mainstream ever again.
"zomg, ur rec didnt sel billins! time to sellout!"
If this awful, circus type nonsense keeps being the pit of the music industry's being, imagine what else could happen? Just pay attention; every decade in music reflects what we were going through culturally.
I hope it's a joke, because if not, I quit music.
Fuck you music industry.

I doubt that there is an iota of truth to any of that.  Remember the headlines:  Golwasser apologizes for Flash Delirium?  Ben said, If you're expecting another Kids, then I'm sorry.  They twist.  This cunt had the headline and the majority of the content written before and if he or she spoke with them...It's crap.  Not only that, it's outdated crap.

I have absolutely not doubt that each album will be more brilliant than the next with full support of their label.
