The video for “Congratulations” by MGMT premiered today. I guess it wouldn’t be MGMT if it weren’t weird, but this one’s particularly depressing! I keep trying to get into the new MGMT, but I just can’t help but like their old stuff better. It just seems like I know of a hundred thousand bands who sound like their new sound already, that raw-edged unpolished stuff. I really thought they were original before, and now they just kind of fade into the background. Anyway, [itunes link="http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/congratulations/id363353526?uo=4" title="Congratulations" text="Congratulations"] is on sale at iTunes for $7.99 all week. Yippee!
Don’t forget that MGMT will be headlining MoogFest 2010 in Asheville, NC on Halloween weekend!
