[PSYCH-POP] It’s hard to believe, but Oracular Spectacular, MGMT’s colossal electro-pop-leaning debut, is now a half-decade old. Since its release, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden have been spending big label money on relatively risky neo-psychedelic projects, estranging their original following while gaining a smaller, albeit more sophisticated, audience. The comfort level with which MGMT is turning out brainy experimental pop suggests this is what the duo wanted all along; it just needed a little cash up front. Recent success stories such as Foxygen owe MGMT for re-popularizing the fantastic and the cerebral in mainstream music, and leaks from the group’s forthcoming record suggest it’ll only solidify the tantalizing trend.
