Alien Days - MGMT

This song is a fevered dream of psychedelic Beatles-era nostalgia and borderline hipster insanity. I have no idea what happened to the MGMT that I fell in love with back in Oracular Spectacular days, but I am digging this massively weird sound because it’s breaking the standards of how trippy music can really be. And maybe Congratulations was so trippy to a point of being crap, but this song restores my hope in MGMT’s crazed foray into attempted avant-garde music.

"And when the light is new the sky shows trembling cartoons."
