MGMT, Oracular Spectacular, LP

Indie, pop, dance, electronic, psychedelic, all are good adjectives to describe MGMT’s Oracular Spectacular. Poetic and strange lyrics accompany great beats and strong synth sounds to make a truly unique album. Some songs are nostalgic sounding, like they miss a past or innocence, while many others evoke a hedonistic style (of music and life). These guys are definitely doing something new here, but they are obviously heavily influenced by the past.

A great album for someone looking for something different: savage and artistic, without being cliché. This is something far more uptempo, nothing dark or depressing. Oracular Spectacular is an album that may not please everyone, but is still worth a listen. My personal favorites are 1-time to pretend (the beginning is reminiscent of Bela Lugosi’s dead by Bauhaus, 5-kids (just a fun song), 6-4th dimensional transition (very classic rock influenced with a great drum, and 9-handshake (it has a rocking ending). 8-Of Moons, Birds & Monsters is a very pop song that has all the earmarks of being a 60s hit; something the Turtles or the Zombies would do.
