It’s been an epic ride with MGMT and their ever-changing synthpop and psych rock over the years. From the breakout success of the band’s first album Oracular Spectacular to their more experimental sound in their later albums, the Connecticut duo has never failed to defy expectations and keep us on our toes. And now, they’re about to drop their fourth album Little Dark Age, which I’ve been looking forward to since they revealed the title track last year. It’s obvious Andrew and Ben have opted to meld some of their avant-garde experimentalism with more of their earlier synthpop and new wave sounds in these new songs. Fresh single Me and Michael, which arrives by way of music video, is more of their electro-tinged, 80s hued pop, heavily drizzled with some italo-wave and a French touch that at times evokes M83 (particularly M83′s album Junk). Pre-order Little Dark Age, here, and let’s celebrate its arrival on Friday.
