In general, people like money. Money contrary to popular belief, can likely buy you happiness. However, for some peculiar reason some people in the music industry hate money. They see money as a bad thing. That takes their credibility away from them apparently. Take MGMT for instance; they got pretty upset for some reason, that their second album ‘Oracular Spectacular’ spawned three pretty monstrous singles, which subsequently popped up in Hollywood films and the bits in Hollyoaks where they don’t speak and other such things where people are paid to find emotive yet commercially viable music to use. In fact the band took their ‘art’ so seriously that they sued THE PRESIDENT OF FRANCE when he used ‘Kids’ in campaign videos and the like without permission. And so, their response is ‘Congratulations’ which they initially didn’t want to release singles for, insisting (in NME where their outlandish pretentious cockishness likely fitted in quite well) that the album was a body of work.

SINGLE: MGMT – Kids

Release Date: October 13th, 2008
Label: Columbia/Sony BMG
Website: www.whoismgmt.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/mgmt

MGMT marked their place in music pretty securely ever since their song ‘Time To Pretend’ was featured on the television series Skins, and many other media mediums alike. Now, their fourth single release, ‘Kids’, offers the same indie rock pleasures, laced with electro beats that got them a large amount of popularity via television.

‘Kids’ is an uplifting and catchy release too, with the vocal chorus hook “Control yourself / Take only what you need from it” being one that will get caught on a loop in your head for a substantial amount of time without fail. MGMT have done it before, and it seems that they’ve managed to do it once again.
