MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
Posted Image

Brooklyn based duo MGMT just finished recording their first LP for Columbia Records. Tentatively entitled Oracular Spectacular, the album was recorded and mixed by the band in collaboration with Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev).

Oracular Spectacular is a 40 minute mind-blowing collection of mini-epics with unusual pop structures. MGMT instructed Columbia to use the following key phrases when asked to describe the album’s sound. These are…

“Future seventies,” “Future Seventies Confusion zone,” “World Country,” “Mystic Future Seventies” and “Mystic Bullshit.”



The album has already leaked and will be officially released digitally on iTunes sometime later this year...but the CD itself won't be out until '08 apparently....

RIYL: Of Montreal, Apes & Androids, David Bowie and Yeasayer

Audio

"Future Reflections"
"Time To Pretend"

The tracks "Electric Feel" and "Of Moons, Birds & Monsters" are highly recommended. This album, when it does come out officially ought to be a great companion piece to Apes & Androids' forthcoming LP Blood Moon.

I've heard mixed reviews of their live act, but the studio stuff is great.

These guys were good live last night. Touring small places with Yeasayer. I had never heard them aside from a half awake viewing of Letterman a few nights ago. Worth the low ticket price.
