I got to meet MGMT when they dropped by the local radio station to co-host on Wednesday. The whole time during the interview Andrew was doodling instead of paying attention haha. He's pretty awkward but really chill. Ben is shy but very sweet.
Andrew VanWyngarden.. is one beautiful man. Sexy bedhair yeah?
I'll try to keep the spazz level down haha.
These guys are so quirky/adorable.
Andrew and Ben liked the way I scratched off the cover! They thought it looked pretty cool and awesome.

Ever since Congratulations leaked earlier this year, some fans went berserk about it claiming that MGMT is trying to get rid of the "mainstream fans." I understand what they mean by that but I don't agree at all. Yes, this new album is very different Oracular Spectacular but there are so many aspects as to why it's like that.
Personally, I like electro-pop a lot and I really enjoyed all of their old stuff. Although I wasn't too impressed when I heard the second album for the first time since it wasn't what I was expecting, as I listened to it more it slowly grew on me. I think it's great that they're experimenting and not just sticking with the "electro-pop" and catchy songs.
Congratulations (I looped this the most out of the album)

I got myself a presale ticket to the August 5th show at Kool Haus. Exactly 14 weeks away! This is a big shot, but is anyone else going? I'm definitely camping out the night before/morning of!
