MGMT Are Coming Back In 2016: Here's Why You Should Be Excited - NME

Cast your mind back to 2008. The day-glo drug disco of nu rave is slowly starting to wane as three-day come downs with only the ringing sounds of Shitdisco to keep you company start to become a bit less MDMA-zing. Leona Lewis’ ‘Bleeding Love’ is keeping The X Factor‘s seemingly unstoppable chart dominancy charging ahead. The concept of the viral Youtube smash is in its infancy and ‘Gangnam Style’, ‘Friday’ and the ‘Harlem Shake’ are but evil glints in the internet’s eye. If you were a fan of aspirational, effervescent, psych-tinged pop bangers, however, then 2008 will mainly be remembered as the year of MGMT. The wonky, parping intro to breakthrough hit ‘Time To Pretend’ was everywhere and debut LP ‘Oracular Spectacular’ brought Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser storming into the limelight and to the top of NME’s Albums of the Year poll. The duo seemed unstoppable, but it wasn’t to be. The more experimental, odd and wickedly underrated offerings of 2010’s ‘Congratulations’ and 2013’s self-titled LP failed to ignite the same commercial flame and MGMT seemed relegated to early evening festival billings forevermore. Yesterday, however, the band sent out a festive tweet teasing a new record in 2016 and showing the kind of self-confidence that suggests the pair aren’t content to sit back on the sidelines any more. Happy bday jesus . Merry holidays everyone. Happy birthday, everyone: 2016 is the year MGMT re-dominates your mind hole , see you then — MGMT (@whoisMGMT) December 25, 2015 Here’s what we want from Album Four and why, if they pull it off, a success could be one of 2016’s best comebacks. Pristine pop vs total weirdness The beauty of MGMT at their finest (see: ‘Electric Feel’, ‘Brian Eno’, ‘Kids’) is that they splice big, bright, shimmering pop sensibilities with the kind of squelching oddness that Syd Barrett might call out as a bit strange. The tracks that haven’t resonated so much with fans are the ones where the balance is off, but if Ben and Andrew can find the perfect middle ground then there’s few who can match them. Curveballs After Nirvana had achieved ridiculous worldwide success with ‘Nevermind’, Kurt Cobain set about trying to write a record (‘In Utero’) that was angry and difficult and cast away the fairweather fans. You could argue that MGMT have followed a similar path: after the enormous success of ‘Oracular Spectacular’, they set about pushing their experimental, idiosyncratic sides forward and letting their psychedelic pool of influences show. MGMT were not content to just be a happy clappy pop band. Now, however, the biggest curveball they could throw would be to come back with an album full of bangers. They’ve shown they can write trippy, ethereal gems: now let’s see the other side of them again. Influential prowess From Swim Deep to Yak to Superfood, you can bet that a large number of this generation’s young contenders have an MGMT album or two on their record shelves. A return to form record …Continue reading »

MGMT | New Music And Songs |

Finding an unlikely middle point between Suicide's hostile, proto-electro punk art noise and the sardonic, pop-friendly sound of the Flaming Lips, MGMT started as electroclash musical terrorists but quickly grew into an eclectic, brainy pop group with psychedelic overtones. MGMT first formed in 2002, during Ben Goldwasser and Andrew Van Wyngarden's freshman year as art students at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. The band was initially known as the Management, and its shows consisted mostly of backing tapes, synthesizers, and prerecorded vocals playing as Goldwasser and Van Wyngarden engaged the audience in a manner somewhere between performance art and good old-fashioned punky hostility. By their senior year, things had toned down considerably on-stage and the duo began augmenting its live sound with backing musicians. After graduating, MGMT released an electro-rock EP, 2005's Time to Pretend, on the tiny indie label Cantora Records. For its full-length debut, the duo partnered with producer Dave Fridmann and recorded Oracular Spectacular, a far more musically expansive album that was released digitally in late 2007. A traditional CD release followed in January 2008, and Oracular Spectacular ultimately enjoyed both critical approval and commercial success, with the album selling over 500,000 copies in the U.S. and going platinum in Australia, the U.K., and Ireland. In 2009, MGMT began working with producer Sonic Boom on their second album, Congratulations. Released in 2010, the record found them growing more ambitious with their sound, and they were rewarded for their trouble when their sophomore effort debuted at number two on the U.S. Billboard chart. The following year, the bandmembers dug deep into their record collections to curate an installment of the Late Night Tales mixtape series. In April 2013, MGMT released "Alien Days", a cassette single that previewed their self-titled third record, which was released that September. ~ Stewart Mason & Andrew Leahey, Rovi
