October 31, 2013

Song Review

"Your Life Is a Lie"

August 15, 2013

The forthcoming LP by these merry pranksters should be a wild ride. Following the floaty psychedelia of "Alien Days," the set's second single is a two-minute skull-fuck pop nugget that makes the title's argument with such earwormy power – like a...


Watch: MGMT's 'Your Life Is A Lie'

Album Review


September 17, 2013

MGMT keep finding new and exciting ways to mess with our heads. On the New York art-rock duo's 2008 Oracular Spectacular, pie-eyed keyboard whimsy was a Trojan horse for cagey lyrics about rock careerism. After the album spawned a couple of small hits,...


Stream MGMT's New Album

September 9, 2013

MGMT's Long Strange Trip: Inside Their Most Experimental LP Yet

MGMT Bring Giant Cowbell to 'Letterman'

MGMT Play New Song 'Mystery Disease' Live
