Indie, pop, dance, electronic, psychedelic … all are good adjectives to describe MGMT’s Oracular Spectacular. Poetic and strange lyrics accompany great beats and strong synth sounds to make a truly unique album. Some songs are nostalgic sounding, like they miss a past or innocence, while many others evoke a hedonistic style (of music and life). These guys are definitely doing something new here, but they are obviously heavily influenced by the past. A great album for someone looking for something different: savage and artistic, without being cliché.
