MGMT are streaming their self-titled new album exclusively on Rdio with an “Optimizer” visual experience that features bizarre imagery (like lo-fi 3D renderings of a bug creature) and kaleidoscopic neon colors. Not surprisingly, the video/album stream also carries a warning for the potential to trigger seizures in people who suffer from photosensitive epilepsy.
“I don’t even know if it’s music we would want to listen to,” MGMT vocalist and guitarist Andrew VanWyngarden told Rolling Stone last week. “It’s just what’s coming out of us. We didn’t make a single compromise.”
MGMT arrives September 17th on Columbia.
