New MGMT Song!


They promised us an experiment and it is safe to say that this certainly is NOT Kids Part II.

The track, Flash Delereium is available from the band's website, http://www.whoismgmt.com and it is well worth a listen. I was swept up in the hype surrounding these guys around the time of the debut and have been waiting in anticipation for new material, especially given the snippets of information they've been feeding us. No singles, experimental, etc...

In just 4 minutes and 16 seconds, the Brooklyn duo treat us to a mish-mash of eastern strings, flutes, and horns, while hopping from one irreverent style to another. A premise so ridiculous that it could have fallen flat on it's face, though somehow Flash Delerium is listenable and has me desperate for more.

Pitchfork describe the track as "wild" and I agree with this. A frantic, creative experiment, MGMT have done enough to whet my appetite. April 13th can't get here soon enough!
