MGMT – Oracular Spectacular

MGMT - Oracular Spectacular

Brooklyn via Wesleyan College product, MGMT, is the first big “blow up” of 2008.  From relatively unknown in late 2007 to the hottest alternative band in a just a few months, the young duo have played all over the country pushing the recent (1/22/08) release of their newest album, Oracular Spectacular.  In what truly is a non-descript genre, MGMT, seems to excite and invite listeners from dance trance to alt-rock and pretty much everything in between.  Their music can best be described as electro-glam-alternative rock, but such a broad description still seems unable to embody the genre breaking music heard on the record.

Highlights include, “Electric Eel”, “Kids”, “Time to Pretend”, and the epic trance-rock ballad “Pieces of What”
