Released:
Label: Red Ink/Columbia
MGMT may use laptops and samplers, but their debut album is really a love letter to the '60s, couriered via the '80s. Psychedelia, bluesy R&B and breezy surf rock swirl together with taut new wave guitars and post-punk atmospherics, creating a sunny sound harboring chilly shadows. Breakout hit "Electric Feel" is lush, slow-mo disco with a softcore vibe, all come-hither falsetto and a bassline to die for, and "Kids" imagines Giorgio Moroder as an emo heartthrob. Elsewhere, the Byrds, the Rolling Stones and the Mamas and the Papas clearly dominate MGMT's board of directors.
