When your small is like people are strange meets pink Floyd. Love the lyric about curling into a ball, funny song

The bubbling synths on James are a lot like the style stereolab used on ffs - interlock iirc

My son is obsessed with this album. It apparently has very high meme value among the teenager set.

My 13-yr-old as well. I'm taking him and his younger brother to see them in Nashville next month, should be fun. (I like the album a lot, too.)

love the sonic details on this album, like the cartoon falling down stairs piano on "when you're small" and the Wendy Carlos clockwork orange styled synth parts on "Hand It Over"

this album is brilliant. love, love, love "When You Die."

The concert last night was as much fun as I expected. Did most of the new album, plus four Oracular, two from Congratulations and "Alien Days." (Plus a cover of "The Neverending Story.") "Flash Delirium" in concert is A+. My kids loved the whole show.

that sounds like an awesome time. i didn't know if they were a good live band or not but it does sound like a hell of a time.

Yeah, tight band, great light show, they put a lot of work into it. It helped that the hall has great acoustics, but they sounded great.

i'm buying tickets tomorrow and probably wouldn't have if Tipsy didn't say how good they were live. so thanks Tipsy Morthra!

Me and Michael wouldn't sound out of place on an old school M83 record

kolakube (Ross), Friday, 16 March 2018 02:01 (five years ago) link

I'm officially going, so stoked for this

going to see these guys in one week, i'm so excited. i now know the new album inside and out. i actually don't know Congratulation that well, only the debut and the new album.

Bee OK, Thursday, 10 May 2018 01:49 (five years ago) link

You should listen to it, it's one of the best albums of the decade

PaulTMA, Thursday, 10 May 2018 15:39 (five years ago) link

"Flash Delirium" in particular is my favorite MGMT song. (And video.)

yeah it really is. title track, song for dan treacy, it's working are all completely classic

flappy bird, Thursday, 10 May 2018 16:51 (five years ago) link

Buddy saw them and said they did a video mocking those who only like their 3 huge hits. Yeah - only the hits you made your careers on :-/

the show was amazing. it leaned heavily on the new album witch was fine with me. it was all techno color and made you want to dance. the did play their three big hits and the place was packed. they had video going on with a smaller HD screen in front of a bigger screen and flashed all sorts of stuff on it. they were pretty psychedelic for the most part. fun show and will see these guys again. they should be massive in this type of music climatic (2018).

is anyone on here seeing them in Hollywood tonight?

Bee OK, Saturday, 19 May 2018 00:57 (five years ago) link

they played the same set but closed the show with "Siberian Breaks" instead. "Congratulations" was also played but was the last song before the Encore instead.

Congratulations to MGMT

Sick encore

one year passes...

enjoyable new single

ufo, Wednesday, 11 December 2019 20:44 (four years ago) link

Wow that's great and a little bit new for them, I could take a whole album of songs like this. Bunch of youtube comments point out a Cure influence and I can hear that

Vinnie, Thursday, 12 December 2019 01:02 (four years ago) link

Definitely sounds like The Cure

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Thursday, 12 December 2019 01:18 (four years ago) link

two years pass...

Is 11•11•11 any good?

Bee OK, Tuesday, 22 November 2022 23:56 (one year ago) link

nine months pass...

Me and Michael booms!

Always like returning to little dark age whenever I need that particular taste of pop. Giving congratulations its first listen based on the reaction in this thread. Loving this second song, like a mid era Beatles song at 1.5x speed and a coat of slick modern production
