Mgmt 2018


#1

We all loved “Kids”, “Time to pretend” and “Electric Feel” back in the day…but I have barely noticed them since 2008…except rumours are circling that their album released Friday is their best yet (cue joke about that not being hard etc.). But this is a very high rym score (which will probably drop a bit, but still): https://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/mgmt/little-dark-age/

Judge by these singles, I guess



#2

You’re late to this party pal, these songs are top though.


#3

Is there another thread? Or is it one of those banger threads (or a MTftSB)?


#4

Does it matter?


#5

If this was just a replica thread I’d happily retire it


#6

Then continue!


#7

Congratulations was a great album. Much better than the first.


#8

Didn’t


#9

I am sorry to hear this :anguished:


#10

When You Die is great, top video too.

Look forward to the whole record, have enjoyed all their albums, even though the s/t did get a bit murky and not as fun in parts. Will have to try and catch em live, last time I saw them was when I was 17 at Reading Festival, crowd surfed out as the sun was setting and they were playing Kids…probably the closest I got to living the Skins fantasy of adolescence


#11

I thought it was nice of Ezra Furman to re-release Time To Pretend as his latest single.


#12

heh, yeah I heard it yesterday on 6music and thought the same. We’re almost in Lana del Reydiohead territory imo.


#13

extremely daft new pop song they’ve made

which also comes in Russian

and Filipino


#14

My only experience of them was as the support (alongside bat for lashes) for Radiohead at old trafford cricket ground in 2008.

Man that was a good gig


#15

Congratulations is one of the most underrated albums of all time.


#16

This album is great, might be my fav of theirs


#17

the one about phones sounds like something from charlie and the chocolate factory


#18

I know! It’s great
