MGMT on the John Peel stage
MGMT on Saturday night at Glastonbury on the John Peel Stage. Seems like a perfect fit to us. Ever since their groundbreaking debut, 2007’s Oracular Spectacular, we have been gripped by the fascinating world of MGMT and its creators Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden. Their psychedelic rock has been the soundtrack for lives, films and so many festivals, including Glastonbury back in 2010.
Last September saw the Connecticut group bring out their third LP, once again stretching artistic boundaries. MGMT (the album) was released with a full-length accompanying music video, The Optimizer, a watch that proves the band have not lost any power to bend minds. With tracks such as Kids, Time To Pretend and Congratulations all in the locker, this could well be THE headline set you don’t want to miss.
