Well now the imagery on the Oracular Spectacular cover that prompted Letterman to remark what a “good time that looks like” at the top of the show makes sense. Cue up the psychedelic colors and return to paradise setting as MGMT strip themselves of this world’s structure and start anew, Lord Of The Flies-meets-“Gronlandic Edit” style. They’re riding cats and worshiping temples and having babies, marking the second time in a little over a month they’ve helped create a new scene. We should’ve known by the vowel omissions they’d were busy dudes.
Oracular Spectacular is out now via Columbia.
