Post-Post-Modern Music: MGMT

MGMT is a group out of Brooklyn that's started to make waves with their album "Oracular Spectacular" (great title, that.)

Rolling Stone named them an 'artist to watch' in 2008 and the album has debuted at no. 12 on the UK album chart.

But who cares how popular they are. The music just sounds cool! And in light of the oppressive monotony (and mediocrity) of modern pop music it's like a revitalizing tonic for the ears.

Incidentally, for those who have never tried acid, this video for "Electric Feel" gives a surprisingly accurate demonstration.

I love MGMT too, but despite what Rolling Stone and zillion blogs say, it's not "pronounced management."

I--plus, Rolling Stone and a zillion blogs--stand corrected.
Thank you.
