MGMT - 'MGMT'

MGMT - 'MGMT'

Pity the band stuck in the last-chance saloon. Once you’ve squandered your success and your corporate paymasters are worried about the running costs of their shareholders’ yachts, you’re going to get reined in. So pity MGMT. After 2010’s...

MGMT - 'Alien Days'

MGMT - 'Alien Days'

The last couple of years haven't exactly been kind to MGMT. Falling from indie-disco dominance quicker than you can say 'CSS', Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser tackled the 'difficult second album' issue by ignoring everyone that liked their...

Album Review: MGMT - 'Congratulations' (Columbia)

MGMT - 'Congratulations' (Columbia)

It’s unfair when a new album’s clouded in popular myth before most people have heard it. It’s unfair as, invariably, the received wisdom of industry mutters turns out to be bullshit. So, unless you want to bullshit, DON’T SAY this about...

Live Reviews: Bestival

Live Reviews: Bestival

Bestival is on a slope. All of it. It should be called Bestiv-hill (Good one – Ed). The newly-moved Main Stage stands atop said mound, veering manically downwards. This makes things difficult. The sound follows the hill, and travels at an odd 90...

Live Review: MGMT

Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden don’t need surfboards or trunks to ride a massive wave of fan support for their first-ever gig in Honolulu. Making their sold-out Hawaii debut, they’re miles from the famed beaches on Oahu’s North...

MGMT

Of late, MGMT have begun to move away from the prankster, shagadelic image we all came to love. They’re keen to become a serious band despite beginning as an art-college joke, and to show that far from acid-fried hippies, they’re hyper-aware,...

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Popular festival band release summer anthem in non-cynical marketing ploy! You won’t buy this, not because of the credit crunch or because it’s rubbish (it’s amazing) but because to find someone who can’t...

Put on MGMT’s ‘Electric Feel’ and close your eyes: you could be listening to the background music to a love scene in Miami Vice. And that’s a compliment. It is so resolutely 1980s, with its slap-bass, synth drums and soft rock keyboards,...

MGMT

As the final scene of Skins’ second series played out to the opening bleeps of ‘Time To Pretend’, the nation came down with a heavy dose of MGMTitis. It’s a bit like meningitis, only you feel less shit and hallucinate tie-dye patterns...

Get a band. Get a couple of million sales. Get laid like a horny orangutang in heat. Get a supermodel wife. Get more drugs than you’d find in Doherty’s urine test. Get a ludicrously named child. Get a financially crippling divorce. Get...
