Released: August 2007

What a track. From the opening choir-like vocals and slamming piano chords, a sound like screaming children and warm, rolling bassline, it's clear that this is no ordinary song. "I wanna get in the sunlight" sings frontman Chris Keating as the music ascends into a blur of Middle Eastern-influenced, psychedelia-infused, whirling, trippy, gospel goodness. Hailing from – where else? – Brooklyn, the band released their critically-acclaimed debut 'All Hour Cymbals' in 2007, before touring with MGMT in 2008 as the 'psychAmerica' sound spread like a spilt lava lamp. Look out for the new album 'Odd Blood' in 2010, with the equally-as-great track 'Ambling Alp' already being played by the band at live shows and providing a thrilling teaser of what's to come.
