Radio Zero: MGMT, Oracular Spectacular

MGMT, Oracular Spectacular [Columbia, 2007]

Steeped in technicolor synths and sputtering drum machines, samples bits of Pink Floyd, starry eyed 70s soul, 80s pinging textures and beats, and a healthy dose of Flaming Lips-style quirkiness courtesy of producer Dave Fridmann. . . sometimes dragged down by horrid lyrical platitudes. . . and while this could be way worse, it could also be way better. Try 1, 2, 4, 5.
