New MGMT album due in June
2013-01-29 by iGuter | 26 Comments

MGMT has certainly been quiet these past 3 years. The details about the supposed Self Titled album were little to none for a long time. Now it seems MGMT has officially confirmed on Rolling Stone that their follow up to Congratulations will be out tentatively in June. The duo, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden, told RS that they had recorded the whole thing themselves just as they did on their previous album and that the new songs will supposedly be influenced by Aphex Twin and house music.

Ben Goldwasser stated that the band is "not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it... There's no illusion on [Columbia Records'] part that that we're going to turn into a Top 40 band."

Regarding the album title, nothing has been confirmed whether or not it will be Self Titled or if the title has changed.

Congratulations was good. I'm excited for this album because I feel like now that people know they aren't trying to recreate the success of those 3 big singles everyone will go into this album with an open mind.

Appears that they deliberately make inaccessible music. I call that trying too hard.

MGMT and Portual. The Man sound awfully similar. Still, anticipation level 8/10

I can't wait. It will probably a strong mix between the first 2 albums but with a slight twist to it, probably less rock and more psychedelic. that's where the aphex twin aspect falls into play.
