MGMT

Man, I just can’t get MGMT out of my system (like Christopher Walken in the More Cowbell skit from SNL). I have considered writing about this band for a couple of weeks and have not been able to do so, mostly because of my inability to define or even decently describe them.  It might be best if you stopped reading and go to Last.fm and give them a quick listen, the next paragraph can wait…

Their album Oracular Spectacular is an entrancing combination of electronica, psychedelic rock, and pop and is a rare combination of songs that makes it listenable from beginning to end over and over again. I listened to it for about a week while driving to and from work and am even considering purchasing it in CD format instead of just a digital version.

Give them a listen and tell me what you think, and how you would go about describing this new exciting turn in music.  I hope their next effort is as good and soon.

    I can’t believe that I haven’t gotten around to listening to this record yet. A number of my friends have been recommending it to me for months, and I just haven’t done it. Now I’ll have to pick it up.
