As reported earlier today by pretty much every other music blog on the entire internet, there is a new MGMT song. It is the first to be released off the new album Congratulations, which I wrote about in a recent post, and it is currently available as a free download on the band’s website, where it is accompanied by the image above.
The track’s called “Flash Delirium” and pretty much sounds like the title suggests. It flashes through so many different styles and instruments in four minutes, that it’ll leave your head spinning. I’m reminded of a quote one of my college professors told me, I think it’s from McLuhan: “If you don’t like these ideas, I’ve got others.” This song is so all over the place, if you don’t like it, just wait a couple seconds.
Oh and there’s flutes! There is really too much going on to fully absorb this song and form an opinion already, but I think I kind of like it. It’s a lot different than the last album, that’s for damn sure. Give it a play below and right click to download.
