Congratulation to MGMT

We should have called Suzie and Bobby (NickB), Friday, 19 February 2010 15:27 (thirteen years ago) link

for their upcoming album

Based solely on amazing chorus in "The Youth" these guys deserve some attention.

Adam Bruneau, Friday, 19 February 2010 18:46 (thirteen years ago) link

That album cover makes perfect sense for this band. The first album's cover is not flattering and already looks dated.

Spinspin Sugah, Friday, 19 February 2010 21:05 (thirteen years ago) link

congrats!

Really wish they'd have kept the original cover for the last album, I liked that much better.

So I'm confused now, is that the album cover or not? Did a quick search and other sources seem to agree.

Moka, Friday, 19 February 2010 23:16 (thirteen years ago) link

Anyways I think it looks really good. Their first ep also had a psychedelic cartoon sort of cover so don't really understand why are you fighting upthread.

Moka, Friday, 19 February 2010 23:19 (thirteen years ago) link

whatever your album cover ends up being MGMT i just wanna congratulate you guys on all your success, you definitely deserve it!

El GarBage (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 19 February 2010 23:19 (thirteen years ago) link

If anything their debut album should have kept the same sort of psychedelic cartoon style.

Congratulation MGMT.

Congratulations on your new single MGMT!

Jamie_ATP, Tuesday, 9 March 2010 22:32 (thirteen years ago) link

Will the new album be less compressed than the debut? I am asking because the debut album was probably one of the loudest albums ever released, and I just cannot listen to it. It may be good, possible, but it wears my ears and head out to such an extent I just wasn't able to enjoy it.

Tied Up In Geir (Geir Hongro), Tuesday, 9 March 2010 22:38 (thirteen years ago) link

this track sounds a lot like an Hot Cheap song

Kaiser Size, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 09:07 (thirteen years ago) link

seeing as this album was financed by a major label, i'm willing to bet that they're just fucking around with this song (see also: album cover) and they'll put out a real single in a week or two

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 10 March 2010 09:10 (thirteen years ago) link

this apparently leaked late tonight -- assume it will get posted during tomorrow's hype cycle

i am of course referring to the track, not jordans opinion.

Is there a story that goes with this?

Shannon Whirry and the Bad Brains, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 11:35 (thirteen years ago) link

pretty sure i've seen posts from a member of the group on this very message board that confirm that.

cwkiii, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 11:48 (thirteen years ago) link

In that case I retract my congratulation.

yes it's true, all the members of the band are actually inexplicably named richard head

In the late summer of 2008, MGMT entered the Norwegian singles list at #1 with "Kids". The week after, it was completely gone. This one week at #1 in the singles list was MGMT's only placing ever on the Norwegian hitlists. I guess people smelled an obvious hype...

Tied Up In Geir (Geir Hongro), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 16:16 (thirteen years ago) link

i want to know why they're dickheads and what thread(s) they posted on

A GREAT BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO MGMT!

autotuna fish (Tape Store), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 16:24 (thirteen years ago) link

i'm a member of MGMT. we toured constantly for 24 years to get our opportunity, over which time i personally have become pop music's preeminent harpsichord player, and i will be DAMNED if i am going to let some snot-nosed peons on an internet messageboard call me and my life partner dickheads. go fuck yourselves.

aarrissi-a-roni, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 16:30 (thirteen years ago) link

the track at Pfrk (Flash Delerium) is much better than the one above, but it is kind of a mess, maybe in a good way.

Zeno, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 16:58 (thirteen years ago) link

congrats?

CONGRATS ON THE NEW MGMT ALBUM WHICH I'M NOW ASSUMING SOUNDS A LOT LIKE OUTTAKES FROM PLANET WAVES

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).

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.

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

Definitely sounds like The Cure

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
