Download: MGMT Live @ Daytrotter [MP3]
Many more of you likely heard their debut album, “Oracular Spectacular,” that comet of a record that rocket-shipped them into the brighter lights and enormous stages, than their second, “Congratulations,” arguably a better album and one that showed their boundless creativity and, just as importantly, their massive balls – yes, their cajones. It is a record that they didn’t have to make, but they did it anyway because they couldn’t conceive of just making a simple, huge-hooked, dance-pop record again.
