Grimes, MGMT To Play An Aircraft Carrier At Comic-Con

San Diego's annual Comic-Con International has long been less a comics convention than a celebration of all things nerdy. The movie and TV industries have made it a launchpad for many big announcements, and now the music industry is making the whole "launchpad" concept a little more literally. Billboard reports that MGMT will play… More »

Watch MGMT Take “Cool Song No. 2″ To Conan

We are now in the week between Coachella weekends, and that means Southern California is now crawling with bands with relatively open schedules, and at least a few of them will spend their time showing up on L.A.-based late-night talk shows. Last night, that meant MGMT showed up on Conan to do a relatively straightforward… More »

The Week In Pop: The Mis-MGMT Of Foster The People

Every few years, a musician achieves that rare combination of commercial dominance and critical acclaim -- and therefore inspires lots of copycats -- only to willfully retreat from the spotlight. This usually involves making an album designed to alienate mainstream audiences and/or distance the originator from the imitators. It also tends to create a vacuum… More »

Wayne Coyne And Miley Cyrus Got High As Fuck And Recorded A Beatles Cover With MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden

Miley Cyrus and Wayne Coyne made their admiration for each other well-known when the Flaming Lips joined the pop star on stage last month for a cover of "Yoshimi" and it seems that their lovefest has made its way into the studio. The day after Coyne joined Cyrus on stage again in Tulsa,… More »

MGMT Need Fans To Play Their Giant Cowbell On Tour

"Your Life Is A Lie," one of the singles from MGMT's new self-titled album, uses a ton of cowbell, and the band used an obnoxiously huge one when they played Letterman a few months ago. And now, with the band heading out on tour, they're asking fans to take over cowbell duties o… More »

MGMT – “Alien Days” Video

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… More »

Watch MGMT Play Jools Holland

When they're on American late-night shows, MGMT tend to crank up the weirdness. But on the most recent episode of the BBC's Later... With Jools Holland, the band played "Your Life Is A Lie," from their new self-titled album, and played it relatively straight. The one freaky piece of stagecraft i… More »

Photos: Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2013

Virgin Mobile Freefest, which was held this past Saturday, might have been the best way to end music festival season for most people. It's got a solid line-up, it's only a single day, and (of course) it's free. Thousands of people collected at Merriweather Post Pavilion to see Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Robin Thicke, Chvrches, and… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Now that nobody ever watches music videos on TV anymore, it's becoming increasingly obvious that the people who make videos don't have to submit themselves to any television network's Standards & Practices department. Nudity and gore and all sorts of other previously-verboten things are fair game. Mostly, that's awesome. But sometimes, we end up with… More »

MGMT – “Cool Song No. 2″ Video (Feat. Michael K. Williams)

Today, MGMT release their messy self-titled third album, and they've also got a new video for us. The "Cool Song No. 2" clip, directed by Isaiah Seret, stars Michael K. Williams -- Omar from The Wire! In a bit of a riff on the character that made him famous, Williams plays an absolute… More »

Watch MGMT Don Scuba Gear, Huff Helium On Fallon

The expectation-flummoxing psych-rock boffins in MGMT are about to release their self-titled third album, which, as our own Chris DeVille raves, is "not a complete shitshow." And on last night's episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the band was in classic trickster-jester form, playing the album cut "Plenty Of Girls In The Sea"… More »

Premature Evaluation: MGMT MGMT

MGMT could have ruled the world. There was a time when Andrew VanWyngarden and Benjamin Goldwasser had a vise grip on pop culture, when smash singles "Kids" and "Electric Feel" and "Time To Pretend" had reached such a saturation point that all the world's radio playlists, TV ads, and music festival playbills seemed to have… More »

Stream MGMT MGMT

It's been kind of exciting waiting for the upcoming self-titled album by MGMT mainly because we haven't heard much off of it. We got "Your Life Is A Lie" (along with that supremely bizarre music video) and then there was the cassette release of an early version of "Alien Days," but other than that… More »
