NY pop duo MGMT executes a fantastic return to form with the sounds of synth pop on Little Dark Age.
Check out MGMT's new video for the song "Alien Days;" it's a delightful, farm-set romp! Our main characters, a young rural couple, appear to be in a constant state of elation - frolicking, swimming, spinning in gyroscopes, experiencing childbirth...Erm, actually, that last one proves to be not so much fun. But there's also a couple of dancing aliens, so overall, the video's a joy. Check it out above!

Neo-psych outfit MGMT returns with a fuzzy new album that's got plenty of odd moments, but too few memorable ones.
Odd, repetitive, quirky, and playful is the new MGMT single! "Your Life Is A Lie" features a guitar riff drum beat that skips like a broken record, and is topped with lyrics that take a hilarious approach to existentialism. What's even weirder is the video attached to this thing, which takes Internet meme-style humor to a new level of absurdity. Enjoy!
MGMT mysteriously drops a new single over the weekend titled "Alien Days," which sees the band staying steadfast in their direction toward the more out-there sounds in psychedelic pop and rock music.
After the release of Congratulations a few years ago, MGMT saw grimaces from fans of their previous pop singles and those who marginalized the duo as yet another overnight pop sensation. Their next full-length has been forecast to be just as strange--if not stranger--than Congratulations. I don't know what this will mean for the band's career, but I know I'm looking forward to hearing what MGMT has to offer.
