In a way, MGMT have always conducted their career in reverse.
Instead of building up to a perfect pop moment, the band smashed it first off before descending into the underground for a period of experimentation and abstraction.
New album 'MGMT' finds the band continuing to move forward. Ten tracks of wide eyed psychedelia, the band even cover 'Introspection' by long lost psych heroes Faine Jade.
'Your Life Is A Life' contains some heavy, fuzzed up guitar effects with MGMT's lyrics continually curling back on themselves. The video for the track was constructed by previous MGMT collaborator Tom Kuntz, and enhances the surrealist nature of their ever-inventive studio work.
