MGMT has been selected to open concerts by two of my favorite bands in the last 2 months. Unfortunately, I missed their set opening for of Montreal at Roseland, but last night experienced this excellent new band at the Music Hall complimenting Fiery Furnaces. MGMT write smart psychedelic pop songs, with obvious older influences (Syd Barrett, Bowie), and some interesting contemporary comparisons (Flaming Lips, of Montreal). Their 45-minute set was well received by a sold-out crowd, and featured exclusively tracks from an upcoming release.

The MGMT debut album Oracular Spectacular is due for release on CD on January 22, 2008. Its currently available for purchase at I-Tunes. Fortunately, hard copies of the CD were available at the merch table last night (for only six dollars!). My Old Kentucky Blog had a nice feature on MGMT a couple of weeks ago (here), where you can also sample a few of the tracks from the album.

This concert was recorded from the ideal location, and the sound quality is excellent.
Fiery Furnaces were also recorded and will be posted soon.

    Wow, I thought MGMT is one of those bands that sound great on CD, but suck at live shows. Well, I was wrong!

    Thank you!
