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
"Time To Pretend"
