End Music Discovery: MGMT "Alien Days"
Let's face it - MGMT has been very attractive at times and not so much at others. However, after "Time to Pretend", "Electric Feel" and "Kids" on "Oracular Spectacular" the follow-up, "Congratulations", was panned by critics and mostly neglected by fans (although, GregR defends that album all the way). It is hard to know what to say about this new song, which was released on Saturday's Record Store Day on cassette. For me I can't help make comparisons to the challenging but enjoyable Fiery Furnaces on “Alien Days” is structure. On the other hand, the kid singing at the beginning is annoying. I suppose we know more about the inspiration for the look on that cat’s face. Listen for yourself.
