I was really glad that at their show they had their backing band leave the stage an the two of them just turned the original song on and went crazy dancing and singing karaoke.

in other news, mgmt were just featured in a converse ad... http://beesboutique.blogspot.com/20...x-converse.html

interesting....?


Cheers, I'll check it out.

in my opinion it is! dont get me wrong, i like the version from oracular. i like that its now played with a full band (and it does sound pretty sick live). but i think the recording itself is just sloppily made and a little to raw

Call me poppy, but electric feel is an awesome song (bit slow on the uptake I know). I'll try to get my hands on orracular I guess.

So my friends are getting into this band. So I must opine.

Time To Pretend is catchy, but to me they are the same as Vampire Weekend. Technically they make good catchy songs, but it is very one dimensional. It isn't something that I would listen to alone. With friends, in the car, dancing, yeah...but not on my own...

im kinda choked cause i heard electric feel on the radio today. they introduced it as a new song, which it is, but i hope it doesnt get over played like every other song on there. i'd much rather get sick of a song by playing it way too many times because i wanted to. haha. not because the radio played it too many times.


but they have a lot of songs that are hard to get into.

i wa also thinking today that they kinda got a modern Beatles sound to them...anyone agree?

oh yah...and i heard both versions of kids and the time to pretend one is much, much better

I like them a lot, but since I've seen them live I've been thinking differently about them. Their live performance isn't as good as it could be.

MGMT's best song is definitely not "Time to Pretend", but I'd buy the album. They have good songs that are very catchy. They aren't inaccessible and they have enough credibility. They are indie rock's new psychedelic music.
