MGMT’s first single from their new album, Congratulations has just been released. Exciting. What’s even better is that they are giving it away for free on their website.
“Flash Delirium” still trys to hold on to the trademark MGMT psychedelic, west-coast surf vibe but in a much less complicated way. This makes it predictable, as it meanders along for 4 minutes and 16 seconds. The only time I was mildly surprised was when the flute chimed in. Looks like someone’s been practising a new instrument.
Has our beloved Brooklyn duo done it again with their fourth release? Torontette is skeptical. There is a certain foolish yet mosiac vibrancy in our favourite MGMT tunes, something which has been forgotten in this one. I’m not too sure if we’ll be congratulating the boys when Congratulations drops on April 13th…hopefully I’m wrong, and we’ll be rocked.
What do you think dear readers?
