After laying relatively low since the release of their sophomore LP, Congratulations, in 2010, outspoken psych rock duo MGMT is back! Steadfastly poised to not lose their idiosyncrasies to mass appeal, the duo has utilized the most unexpected of teases to promote their new single, “Alien Days,” out April 20th.
In advance of the expected June drop of their new album, the band will release a cassette single of “Alien Days” later this month. “A cassette? I don’t understand,” said no one who is familiar with the band, ever. The electro-psych/indie duo has been making waves and pushing the limits of mainstream music since 2008. With records themselves pushing their own limits as to what’s passé these days, count MGMT first in line to revive the cassette enthusiasts once-maligned collection. The “Alien Days” release, which will help celebrate Record Store Day, will also feature a download code for those who long since tossed away their boom boxes.
