Many criticized "Your Life Is a Lie", the first single off MGMT's
forthcoming, self-titled LP, and surely that's because it wasn't as radio-friendly as their 2007 debut Oracular Spectacular
. But as we all saw in their sophomore follow-up, Congratulations
, these two dudes intended on getting weird. Maybe some expected them to reconsider on their third, and they would deliver another 12 easily digested "Electric Feel"'s, but thankfully, they chose to dig deeper into their bizarre imaginations. And to further embellish their obscure experimentation, MGMT recently shared this trailer for the new album, featuring an angry bathroom possum, an NSA wire tap, and reptoids (which seem to be led by some Inspector Gadget-like Claw villian).
