MGMT is by far the hottest band in LA right now. They just played a sold-out show with Beck at the Hollywood Bowl and the buzz is that they brought down the house. Then they played at the TV Guide Emmy after-party at Hollywood hotspot The Kress on Sunday night. You could hear them rocking out down the street, and they sounded so amazing that everyone thought it was a CD. For real, these guys are that good.
We love that MGMT calls their music "easy listening" on their Myspace page. It's just not exactly the first thing to mind, but on second thought, that's just what you get when you listen to their album Oracular Spectacular. Catch them at Austin City Limits this weekend, and click www.myspace.com/mgmt for more tour dates.
Oh, and download Electric Feel. You'll be glad you did.
