It’s not a music video, but the thing I saw this week that left the deepest impression was the introduction to the 2011 CMT Music Awards, a galactically dumb comedy bit that happens to star Taylor Swift, Shania Twain, Kid Rock, and, in a bone-chilling cameo, Donald Trump. I’m a bit worried that Kenny … More »
Earlier this Spring, the seminal indie rockers — or “rokkers,” if one prefers the band’s spelling — MGMT took to social media to hint at a comeback and went on to announce the title of their first record in over four years, Little Dark Age.
At last, the band has unveiled new music in the form of the record’s title track and a confirmation that the LP is slated for early 2018.
“Little Dark Age” marks a sinister departure from the band’s well-known numbers like “Time To Pretend” or “Kids.” Still, it maintains some semblances of pop, in a seemingly candid, illustrious fashion. The tune flourishes in its chorus, “If you get out of bed/ And find me standing all alone/ Open-eyed/ Burn the page/ My little dark age.”
Little Dark Age will mark MGMT’s first album since their 2013 self-titled. Speaking with Beats 1 radio’s Zane Lowe, the duo detailed the recording process, “We felt like we had reached a flow, it was the sort of chemistry, the kind of magic feeling we had when we started the band.”
Back in May, MGMT started teasing a new album called Little Dark Age, their first since 2013’s mixed bag of a self-titled record. Now, over four years later — and just over 10 years(!) since their debut Oracular Spectacular — they’re finally back with the new album’s title track. During an interview … More »
MGMT just teased 10-seconds of a new song called “Little Dark Age,” off of their forthcoming album by the same name that we first learned about earlier this year. The band posted the snippet to Twitter and they haven’t shared a release date yet. Check it out below. More »
When Hollywood unveils its first nostalgic coming-of-age period piece about the late aughts, an MGMT song will inevitably soundtrack the trailer. “Kids” is the obvious choice to accompany the exploits of young people at the dawn of the Obama administration due to its title, its propulsive-yet-wistful tone, and its status as the band’s biggest hit.

The Bag Raiders might have the most recognizable electro-pop song out there, whether you know their name or not. Jack Glass and Chris Stracy have been producing stellar music since ’08, but a recent viral video featuring their music has catapulted their fame from the EDM scene, to the modern meme cannon. “I like all

Hank Sullivant was a bassist in the Whigs and a touring guitarist with MGMT during their Oracular Spectacular-era breakout, but all the while he’s been releasing his own music under the name Kuroma. The project’s latest collection of psych-pop goodies, The Dark Horse Rides Again, is entering the world this Friday, but we’ve got an … More »
Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden are two names you may not be familiar with, but we know you’ve heard of MGMT. The duo has been notoriously absent from the spotlight over the last couple years. Late last year, they got us all hot and bothered with a 2016 return announcement, but that’s since been disproved. However, as the year wanes and they, they’ve thrown us some hope for a 2017 resurgence.

The masterminds behind “Kids” and “Electric Feel” are plotting their return in 2017. Around Christmas time of 2015, MGMT originally teased their return for the 2016 year. Now with only three months left in the year, Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser have resurfaced on Twitter to say that they meant to say 2017. Meant to
There’s something exciting happening in electronic dance music right now. As 2016 draws to an end, fans’ nostalgia for many of dance music’s most beloved acts will be satiated. Justice and Gorillaz both have plans for a momentous year in 2017. Now, MGMT have joined their ranks by hinting at plans for a comeback campaign next year.
MGMT took to Twitter to tentatively announce their intention to re-emerge next year, though official details about the band’s comeback are currently sparse. The group previously alluded to a reunion at the end of 2015, but have provided no details since. Now, with the Oracular Spectacular proponents ready to “re-dominate your mind hole” next year, expect 2017 to be an exceptionally memorable year for dance music.
