it's kind of totally baffling to me how many "congratulation" images are -- i've never heard the word used in the singular form like that -- i'm assuming the images were made by... stupid people?

Results 1 - 10 of about 282,000 for "congratulation for". (0.29 seconds)

will I be the only person here calling out the wtf "congratulation on your baby girl"?

that king park public school sign--soooooo obvious that they ran out of s's

Leaky-loo.

Cursory listen inspiring much agony.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 20 March 2010 07:07 (thirteen years ago) link

Listening to the leak right now. Want to believe so hard it's all a joke, sort of a rickroll just instead of having 9 times the same rick astley song we have 9 'songs' recorded by MGMT on a lazy Sunday afternoon as a prank for leakers.

I mean wtf is this thing?

Moka, Saturday, 20 March 2010 07:46 (thirteen years ago) link

A shame because I really like the artwork and was hoping for a good excuse to buy it on vynil.

Congratulation to MGMT for their upcoming album that everyone hates

Congratulation for pretending your first single was a joke to make your record company feel better

Congratulation for your album still ending up in the ILM top 50 of 2010

Commiseration on your terrible second album.

The song where you go on about how ace Dan Treacy is in the style of one of his recent appalling songs is surely post modernism reaching its lowest ebb. And the song where you diss Brian Eno... Well...

Doran, Saturday, 20 March 2010 12:20 (thirteen years ago) link

Doran! You get given lots of album copies early - what's cooking atm?

LiveJournal (acoleuthic), Saturday, 20 March 2010 12:22 (thirteen years ago) link

Interestingly, no one would give me MGMT despite the fact we were interviewing them last week. It was almost as if they didn't want us to hear it before we interviewed them...

Ones that I like that are out soonish are Foals, LCD Soundsystem, Walls, Nice Nice, Virgo (reissue), Blood Of The Black Owl, Chrome Hoof, Matthew Sawyer, Mulatu Astatke, Tamikrest.

Doran, Saturday, 20 March 2010 12:32 (thirteen years ago) link

I'm skeptical of the first two but fully prepared to believe they've done good this time - the rest (aside from the amazing and brilliant Chrome Hoof) I am unaware of - as I've said, 2010 is definitely going to be, for me, the best year for new music in living memory

LiveJournal (acoleuthic), Saturday, 20 March 2010 12:36 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh, and Cathedral.

Doran, Saturday, 20 March 2010 13:07 (thirteen years ago) link

^^^The 'other' JD has been telling me that is the best shit ever - a good year for the brothers Smee

LiveJournal (acoleuthic), Saturday, 20 March 2010 13:08 (thirteen years ago) link

He's right.

Doran, Saturday, 20 March 2010 13:17 (thirteen years ago) link

what's virgo?

Virgo Four: The Best Chicago House Album

Chicago house act from late 80s. They've got some reissues coming out on CD, not available for ages. Really fucking great house.

Doran, Saturday, 20 March 2010 16:59 (thirteen years ago) link

Haven't heard them all yet but those seem like great recommendations Doran. So just for the record, you already have a copy of the MGMT album and you can confirm it's not a prank right?

i think you mean NME top 10

Haha, maybe it is. Their way of saying "Congratulation on finding the leak!"

AlexPh, Saturday, 20 March 2010 21:28 (thirteen years ago) link

There is a fake leak going around that fits that description.

Simon H., Saturday, 20 March 2010 22:51 (thirteen years ago) link

I got my leak from sordo music yesterday and it seems the link has been deleted already. Not sure if this attests to its authenticity, Doran pretty much confirmed already confirmed it's real and it's crap tho.

Moka, Saturday, 20 March 2010 22:59 (thirteen years ago) link

Doran hasn't *exactly* confirmed it's real tbh

Alright listening to the stream and I think I most definitely did have a fake leak as this sounds much better... although to be honest I deleted it after a listen and can't confirm. This doesn't want me to kill myself.

Moka, Saturday, 20 March 2010 23:49 (thirteen years ago) link

Siberian Breaks and I found a whistle were my favorites on first listen. Doesn't seem to be anything in here ripe for singles radio or clubs but this is much better than what I had put my hopes on. I feel an odd relief after I started to lose all hope on them after listening to that fake leak :P

Moka, Sunday, 21 March 2010 00:01 (thirteen years ago) link

79.72 MB ?

Bee OK, Sunday, 21 March 2010 04:55 (thirteen years ago) link

That stream is the same thing I was listening to last night. I still think it's terrible. I wonder how bad the fake leak must be if you actually like this, Moka.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 21 March 2010 04:58 (thirteen years ago) link

this has some moments -- "someone's missing" & "i found a whistle" -- but it really does kind of reek of a band grasping at something and not knowing at all what that is. i'm sure they're proud of making a left turn album that will divide their fanbase and critics, but i'm pretty sure there will be a day when their fame has passed when they look back and say "yeah this album is pretty retarded." it's pretty laughable that this is being released by a major label.

also lyrically, not like it matters all that much, but they're still very much the band that rhymed "electric eel" and "electric feel"

shabba canks (J0rdan S.), Sunday, 21 March 2010 05:31 (thirteen years ago) link

it's funny -- yeasayer & mgmt toured back in the day before mgmt really blew up, and after hearing their respective first albums, if you told me, "one band will overreach in an attempt to make a challenging second album and it will lead to nothing of worth and quite possibly might kill their career" and "the other band will pare down their negative qualities and write a second album that is not perfect, but indisputably has three or four epic, monster anthems" i would not have guessed that mgmt would be the first band and yeasayer would be the second
