MGMT – “Flash Delirium” & “Congratulations”
Probably more satisfying to MGMT fans than the 21-second guide to Congratulations’ scratch-off packaging, this 4 minute and 16 second pop song “Flash Delirium” finds the guys blasting off into some DayGlo Bowie-tinged psychedelia. It’s all over the place. That said, remember the collection was recorded by ex-Spacemen 3 astronaut Pete Kember (aka Sonic Boom) with mixing by Flaming Lips secret weapon David Fridmann. The 3:30 mark is a nod to a pop song I can’t place right now. They also borrowed someone’s flute.
Congratulations is out 4/13 via Sony/Columbia. Apparently the title track’s leaked, too — pick that up over at We All Want Someone.
