MGMT - "Oracular Spectacular"

MGMT first gained a following two years ago with their "Time To Pretend" EP, a raw excursion into electro-psych-pop. Now the duo has become a trio and have just released their first full-length "Oracular Spectacular", a solid debut of sweet, experimental, psychedelic electro-pop (even though they have said themselves they do not want to be described by many of those words). These are a pair of lads from Wesleyan University who relocated to Brooklyn, got discovered by some NYU students who distributed the EP, which led to a record deal with Columbia and an opening slot on Of Montreal's current tour. Not bad.

The new album is really infectious. From first listen I was immediately hooked and I can't stop repeating it on my iPod. Check out the opening track, 'Time To Pretend':
