If MGMT were still making good music, it would sound a bit like Coast Modern!
This is alterna pop cool greatness for 2016!!!
The Los Angeles duo is back with a new song that NEEDS to be a radio smash! It has all the makings of one!

We don't often post covers as "Listen To This" selections, but this one is too good!
We all know and love MGMT's breakthrough hit, Electric Feel.
Well, Australian band Crooked Colours has just put their own spin on the bright and bouncy tune and it's dark and it's creepy and it's awesome!
Check it above!

Beck must not have gotten enough of being interrupted while accepting Grammys, because he's already asking for more!
Um, awards that is. Not the live TV disses.

The Loser singer's new song Dreams has a groovy tone like a slightly more energetic version of MGMT's Electric Feel. And we are INTO it!
Will the stand-alone summer jam be his next award winner? Will Kanye West be okay with that??
Ch-ch-check it out (above) and decide for yourself!

There is some GREAT new music coming out of Australia!
Like Flume, a recent obsession, fellow Aussies Jagwar Ma are pushing erasing boundaries and exploring different genres and sounds.
Perhaps most sonically akin to MGMT (on their first album) and British brood band Alt J, Jagwar Ma is giving us left-of-center rock with pop influences and a touch of psychedelic.
It's pretty freakin rad!
Check out their awesome tune Uncertainty (above).

MTV's Video Music Awards will go where no awards show has gone before!!
In true hipster fashion, the VMA's will be moving to Brooklyn, New York and take place at Barclay's Center.
This will mind the FIRST EVER awards show to take place in the flannel-wearing heaven that are the boroughs of Brooklyn!
President of MTV, Stephen Friedland, explained:

We are loving Wynter Gordon's new music soooo much!
The former dance artist has reimagined herself as a cooler and more credible act, and we are so digging it! There is a real honesty and authenticity that comes across the music!
The songs are all very varied yet still feel cohesive under this new Wynter Gordon umbrella, like Lucky Ones, which reminds us of MGMT meets Solange.
Check it out above!

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.
