Song of the day – 322: MGMT
just been listening to MGMT for the first time ever. They really are OK, aren’t they?

I kinda love them
and I didn’t want to
music is superb. was surprised to hear that a hipster band was doing a Clean cover, and that’s why I decided to check them out. now I fully understand
in places, they’re almost like an American Gorky’s
I think they’re more than OK. They’re last album kind of turned them into an American Super Furry Animals, but I can handle that.
Spooky. I wrote that before seeing your comment. Apparently they have an inherent Welshness.
cocaine, elegant cars. heroin, fuck with the stars.
Wait till you hear them for the billionth time
Yeah commercial saturation sort of destroyed them, but Electric Feel really is a great song.
the justice remix of electric feel is TOP
I was resistant forever after I saw a truly shitty gig they did at an Urban Outfitters at SXSW a few years ago. Totally ignored the first album when it came out. But then I quit being an asshole and actually listened….yeah, they’re pretty damn good.
They’ve been terrible the two or three times I’ve seen them live
I think they are as bad as Arcade Fire! And possibly even more overexposed…
ET, I told you that last year as soon as their album came out! Oh well, better late than never
They’re great. Especially cause they told U2 and Coldplay to fuck off refusing to open for them in a big stadium. They always do what they like with their music and the second record with no hits after a supercatchy debut, testifies this. Brave and genuinely crazy guys, really like them!
oh yes, unfortunately the guy has no voice whatsover live, better to listen to them on record.
I listened to them just now – Electric Feel and another one. Catchy tunes, but could do with better structures. I think “OK” is exactly my reaction.
ET this is more worrying than your threat of driving into the car in front x

My name is Everett True. I am a music critic. This is what I do. I criticise music. The clue is in my job description – music critic. I do not consider myself a journalist, as I do not research or report hard news. I do not consider myself a commentator as I believe that everyone should be a participant. I criticise people and in return I am not surprised if other people criticise me. It is part of the whole deal of being in the public arena. I am Everett True. Believe in me and I have power like a God. Quit believing in me and I no longer exist.
