The upcoming ‘Congratulations’ album (release date April 13th) will have very little to do with Electric Feel, Time to Pretend, and Kids – instead it will be about a complete journey within the dying medium, an album. A nostalgic experience when listening to a piece of music in one sitting was a privilege. I personally thought their sound never had lasting power and with this album, MGMT is going to alienate their old fans and just win over a different kind of new fan since it will be so hard to reproduce the greatness and success that was “Oracular Spectacular”. Their new leaked single is all over the place, showing flashes of pop, funk and psychedelic influences, all the while coming together to create that signature MGMT sound.
