    With a lengthy tour starting tomorrow, and an awesome 2007 CD, (Oracular Spectacular), it will be difficult to disobey a direct order from MGMT, when they tell us "do what you feel now." Well, we want to see you guys live... especially with highlights like late night TV, Lollapalooza, McCarren Pool Party, and Austin City Limits (not to mention shows with Radiohead and Spoon!)

    Their website is a good match for the music (it's kind of trippy). "Yeah it's overwhelming, but what can we do?" croons MGMT on "Time To Pretend," but they aren't kidding; the electro-funk indie rock these guys crank out is no joke. It might be overwhelming at times, but it's anything but boring or overdone; it's almost pyschedelic in its soundscapes and reverberated vocals. But seriously, they are one of those bands that just sound cool. Catch them this summer. -joe puglisi
