New Video: MGMT "Flash Delirium

Flash Delirium [Video Premiere]

What an interesting video. The duo MGMT who was nominated for Best New Artist Grammy in this year's ceremony is back with their sophomore album Congratulations due next month. They have decided not to officially promote any radio singles and focus on the album as a whole for the release.

From an interview with New Musical Epress, a UK popular music magazine:
"We'd rather people hear the whole album as an album and see what tracks jump out rather than the ones that get played on the radio – if anything gets played on the radio!"
Goldwasser explained. He added: "There definitely isn't a 'Time to Pretend' or a 'Kids' on the album. We've been talking about ways to make sure people hear the album as an album in order and not just figure out what are the best three tracks, download those and not listen to the rest of it."

Interesting point. In a time when people only download the singles from iTunes or illegally, the art of a great album often gets lost. I dig them. And to think, I never would have gotten into them if it were not for Solange's blog.
