MGMT – Time To Pretend

MGMT’s debut ‘Oracular Spectacular’ was produced by Dave Fridmann and already I can picture ears being cocked all over the place. If that wasn’t enough they have just signed to Columbia Records who probably have a huge wallet preparing a media onslaught to blind our senses. Not terribly indie you might say but who cares when the Brooklyn duo can turn what initially sounds like a tinny Snow Patrol cover into a blazing electronic montage to light up your aural cavities. Yep, ‘Time To Pretend’ may have its motivation birthed in soft MOR but MGMT see fit to serve it up amid a cloud of vibrant digitalisation. The effect is an uplifting fuzzy delight that should knock a few Of Montreal fans sideways as the 2 bands tour together over the next few months. KD
