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

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

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 10 March 2010 09:15 (thirteen years ago) link

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 10 March 2010 09:15 (thirteen years ago) link

damn, that is really really boring.

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

mark e, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 09:33 (thirteen years ago) link

congratulation, jordan, on your not-boring 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.

Congratulation to MGMT for their upcoming suggest ban

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 13:02 (thirteen years ago) link

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...

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.

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?

Deuce Bigalow: Male Juggalo (M@tt He1ges0n), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 17:00 (thirteen years ago) link

i'm also a member of MGMT, and I'd like to thank ILX for their congratulations for our upcoming album.

tylerw, Wednesday, 10 March 2010 17:04 (thirteen years ago) link

don't get greedy dude, we didn't give you any more than one congratulation

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

Deuce Bigalow: Male Juggalo (M@tt He1ges0n), Wednesday, 10 March 2010 17:22 (thirteen years ago) link

Thank you. There's also a little Chrome Dreams in there, as well.

"Flash Delerium (Remix)" - MGMT feat. Kid Cudi, Ralph Molina, Rivers Cuomo, and Daniel Lanois

perfect

from brooklynvegan:

You have won a chance to be part of an extraordinary MGMT event. The MGMTmobile will be visiting 6 cities, and we are challenging YOU to come find it

We will reveal clues to the location 1 hour prior to arrival. The first 6 people to this location will be part of a very special MGMT experience. Be sure to stay tuned as we reveal each city below. [Where is MGMT?]

This show "event" starts at 5pm?

UPDATE: This is NOT a show. My guess: they're going to play the record for people that get there in time.
UPDATE 2: And it's not even for that many people. The first people that got there went into a van I think.
UPDATE 3: The first few people that got there were loaded in a van. The rest saw "MGMT Was Here" written in on the sidewalk and were GIVEN A BUTTON!

Sorry I ever even posted about this. :-( -- Lame stunt.

mizzell, Thursday, 11 March 2010 14:23 (thirteen years ago) link

lol

very special

dmr, Thursday, 11 March 2010 14:41 (thirteen years ago) link

congratulation on your button, thanks for coming

OMG, sounds like the people who arrived first were abducted?

OMGMT!

Spam I just got in my inbox:
"Microsoft Corporation Wishes You Congratulation.....Dear Lucky Winner.!!!"

I still want to know the story behind "these guys are dickheads"

Shannon Whirry and the Bad Brains, Friday, 12 March 2010 11:30 (thirteen years ago) link

congratulations on your new MGMTMobile MGMT!

louis do not fuck achewood (acoleuthic), Friday, 12 March 2010 11:33 (thirteen years ago) link

also guys it's CONGRATULATION singular, i don't want to see more than one congratulation doled out at a time for the remainder of this thread, this is like when people keep misquoting 'why because she look intersting', it kills me inside

louis do not fuck achewood (acoleuthic), Friday, 12 March 2010 12:22 (thirteen years ago) link

i love you, you bastard

louis do not fuck achewood (acoleuthic), Friday, 12 March 2010 12:39 (thirteen years ago) link

uhh there are two congratulations there

but actually it is impossible to have a penis on the body of a mermaid (dyao), Friday, 12 March 2010 12:41 (thirteen years ago) link

uhh there are two congratulations there

hence 'you bastard' - my dictum was skilfully circumvented

louis do not fuck achewood (acoleuthic), Friday, 12 March 2010 12:52 (thirteen years ago) link

uhh plz do not circumvent my dictum

but actually it is impossible to have a penis on the body of a mermaid (dyao), Friday, 12 March 2010 12:54 (thirteen years ago) link

tia

but actually it is impossible to have a penis on the body of a mermaid (dyao), Friday, 12 March 2010 12:54 (thirteen years ago) link

i can do it without you even noticing

Sick encore

enjoyable new single

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

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Thursday, 12 December 2019 01:18 (three 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
