The video for “Your Life Is A Lie” was probably the best thing to come from MGMT this year. It was a perfect combination of weird and goofy. Their new one is less goofy and more weird, but the sci-fi treatment fits nicely with “Alien Days,” a song that already sounded like a spacey B-movie take on the Zombies. Watch the Megha Barnabas and Sam Fleischner-directed video below.

Alien Days is out now via Columbia. Read can our Premature Evaluation of it here.

  1. That was totally whacked out, and I loved it.

    Easily the best song on what was a disappointing, and dare I say, too weird album.

  2. Just in time for halloween.

  3. I originally wanted to say, WTF. But, then again, it is MGMT. One of the best songs on the album.

  4. Alien Days didn’t disappoint me at all and it is, in fact, one of my favorite and most played records of this year. I mean: I’m a big fan of Syd Barrett and Kevin Ayers, so this fresh take on prog psychdelia is really right down my alley.

  5. All this creativity from MGMT lately has me super stoked for their Atlanta show Nov. 24! They’ve evolved into an amazing band!
