Hmmmm. Very… deconstructive? Noisy? A work of pure distorted genius?
We're not really sure WHAT to make of MGMT's etherial, cacophonous cover of Fleetwood Mac's Future Games, especially as it felt like our brainz were being munched on by some peircing musical insect within the first few minutes!
Take a listen (above) and if you can stick through the ENTIRE nine-minute medley, then so many props to you.
MGMT are one of the many talented contemporary bands twerking their favorite Fleetwood Mac songs as part of a tribute album titled Just Tell Me That You Want Me, to be released August 14th in the US.
And now that we've heard this interesting number, our appetites are whetted for SO MANY MORE Fleetwood Mac infusions!
Future Games was originally written by the late Bob Welch, who committed suicide in early June (R.I.P.).
Sad sad sad.

After the extremely sad news yesterday of the passing of Fleetwood Mac's guitarist and vocalist, Bob Welch, his former bandmates are speaking out.
Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks expressed her condolences in a statement, saying:

We really can't believe it. This is so devastating.
Fleetwood Mac's former guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch was found dead in his Nashville home Thursday after shooting himself in the chest.
The 66-year-old, who recently suffered from health problems, was found by his wife with a suicide note.
We can't even begin to imagine the grief his wife must be feeling right now.
Our thoughts go out to her and his family.
