MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
More than a bit late on posting this, but better late than never. Like the Flaming Lips, MGMT blends familiar earthly sounds and themes with the outrageous noise and productions that seem to come from another time and planet. Some songs like "Kids" with the filtered vocals and simple but catchy synths could be played in a club on Mars. "Electric Feel" is another great track from this spacey record, the simplicity of the song brings to mind Spoon's "I Turned My Camera On" where a great bass line can totally carry a song. If you haven't heard this and by chance your a fan of Flaming Lips or Animal Collective, I think you'll really enjoy this one. Enjoy.
