Awesome thread! All these bands have always been a big, interesting but confusing sauce in my head - but not anymore. Thanks so much for the effort!

Maybe you could add Panda Bear to 'MGMT enjoys'?

Wow great thread :) I love to read about their favourite music because I always discover good music through MGMT's influences. Bruce Haack should definitely be added to the list,. I also know that James likes an album called Surfer Rosa, by the Pixies wich he mentioned in an interview. Here's also a good article with a playlist from Ben: http://www.wired.com/underwire/2009/11/playlist-mgmt-ben-goldwasser/



Thank you! I completely agree on finding good music because of them! That's one reason we wanted to do this. Would you say Bruce Haack is an influence or someone the band enjoys? And yes, we will definitely add the Pixies. I remember James mentioning them. And thanks for the link to the playlist! We'll add that as well! Good info!!!  :)

Not a problem! I'm glad you like it. We can't get enough of their musical influences because it's all such great music, so this was an easy and fun way to organize and share it all!

Thanks for the suggestion!

I don't if it would be considered "Toured With" worthy but The Willowz did open for them for at least a couple of gigs this past spring..Toronto at the Mod and in New Hampshire (or was it Vermont) (it was a college spring fling I think)

Edit: I almost forgot ...Janelle Monet @ Red Rocks

Edit Again: oops sorry for the spelling error should be "Monae" ;D...thanks for picking that up LOL

Thank you everyone for the compliments and the additions. I am glad that other people find this interesting as well and that we are already beginning to add to it.  I went in and made the following updates:

Enjoys - Pixies, Panda Bear, The Tornados, Joe Meek, Bruce Haak
Tour - The Willowz, Janelle Monae

Thank you very much for reminding us that this playlist existed.  It's all been added.  I did put Bruce Haack in the "enjoys" category but let me know if you fell strongly about it being somewhere else.

Ah yes, I do remember something like that.  I would like to find the actual interview though before I put it up here.  Let me know if you find it and I can look for it too later.  Thanks!

EDIT: I found it, so I will add this at some point tonight.  Thanks again  :)

I love this all so much... the thread, feedback, everything. I get a lot of my music from things like this.

I wonder if they like Arcade Fire. Cuz in an interview once they were asked something like 'What's a band people compare you to that you don't think seems correct' and they said Arcade Fire. I wasn't sure if that meant they liked 'em or not xD Anyone wanna do the digging? lol

It's so cool that you did this :) I always here tidbits of their inspirations, favourite artists etc. and collect them in all sorts of strange places :P.
Thank you for making this is! :D
