MGMT: “Congratulations” Video (HD)

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 ...

Band of Horses: ‘Infinite Arms’ Album Review

Band of Horses has been, for me, one of those bands that I liked, but never really got into in depth.  They’ve always been kind of “The Shins Lite” for me, with Ben Bridwell‘s vocals settling somewhere in between James Mercer‘s whine and Built to Spill‘s Doug Martsch‘s lazy warble.  Sure, “The First Song” is on the tracklist of my ...
