Can’t Sleep? Watch The New MGMT Video!
Ok if you missed my little post titled “MGMT On Letterman Last Night (Boring Millions!)”, read up on that first. Or if you want the Cliff Notes version, these posers be trippin’. But let’s be fair, this isn’t a new thing. These guys have been trippin’ Jack Daniels since day one. And it’s pretty fucking crystal clear at this point in the game that if someone else didn’t write their first record for them (ala The Strokes having their “Guru” dude write their first record) then it was a freak accident they can not recreate. So now we’re forced to watch these two morons try and “become arty and weird” yet all they’ve mustered up so far is “BORING” and “REALLY BORING” with their last two records. It’s like why don’t you guys just stop, break up the band and get into theatre or something. At least those costumes and capes you’ve been wearing won’t seem so outta place in that scene.
So yeah, MGMT has a new video and even though they paid Omar from The Wire to be in it and make em look cool… they do not succeed. While watching the music video for “Cool Song No. 2” (which I recommend they rename “Boring Song No #36” because it’s totally false advertising) I felt like I was watching The Kids Of Widney High. Bragging rights: I actually saw The Kids Of Widney High at the PCH club back in the day. If you’re not hip to The Kids Of Widney High… check them out: http://kidsofwidneyhigh.com).
