"Alien Days" strikes me as extremely similar to the stuff on Congratulations. I actually sort of hope it doesn't make the album, sort of like how of Montreal played that song pseudo-funk style called "Sails Hermaphroditic" live post False Priest, but it didn't end up signaling what the next album sounded like (or making the album at all). I'd like a truly new direction from a band as well-read musically as MGMT is, but I'm starting to ramble.

i have to say i disagree, as much as i love bands discovering new sounds, its also very satisfying when they found their direction and keep continuing down it. i want it to sound like it were inspired by congratulations, not too huge of a departure away from it, sort of like they found their sweet spot and are exploring every possible dimension of it.

"They’ve also been recording their third album since the beginning of the year, which could be released in September if Internet rumours can be trusted. A video of the band performing a new song called Alien Days surfaced on YouTube in March; the song has a fuzzed-out Pink Floyd vibe that doesn’t signal a return to MGMT’s pop past.

Goldwasser said he’s not ready to talk about the new album yet, but it can’t help but come up obliquely in conversations about the band’s future.

“We’re set up at this point where the next album can be whatever we want it to be. We don’t have to appease anybody in order to stay relevant, because I think we managed to prove we’re a band that cares more about authenticity and doing what we feel like,” he said.

He’s trying not to worry what people might think of the new songs while he’s writing them, because he said he can tell when a band writes a song in response to how they’re being portrayed in the media.

Another plus side of surviving the Congratulations backlash is that fans who come out to MGMT’s shows nowadays know what to expect from the band. They’re the ones who have embraced the group’s psychedelic-rock side, not those who were tapping their feet impatiently waiting for Time to Pretend.

“It seems like there are still people out there who are waiting to hear what we do next, and I hope they like it.

“Or maybe they’ll just be p--sed off that we didn’t make another record that sounds like Congratulations.”

Haha

Thanks for that, girl! It's funny, until I read that, I had never really thought about Ben and Andrew fighting. But working together that long would make it inevitable. Awww. :) Haha.

anytime guys! its been a while since i read a new mgmt article. i laughed at them fighting over songs too. its so cute. but arguing over music is inevitable for any band i think, the more comfortable you are the more you're going to fight for what u like better. im really excited for the direction theyre going to take for this. i cant wait for that first moment listen when the world stops and your brain swims in it...  ;D

This is so annoying.  The rumor was actually started by a legitimate source at Columbia with bad information.
