MGMT - Oracular Spectacular

Posted August 8th, 2009 at 07:02 AM by Samurai Drifter (Samurai Drifter's Caterpillar House)

With a synthy neo-psychedelia feel reminiscent of The Flaming Lips, MGMT's first major label album "Oracular Spectacular" is a dreamlike listening experience with one or two hit singles or potential hit singles ("Kids," "Time to Pretend") overshadowing the rest of the tracks on the album. While good, they simply can't measure up, and this provides an enjoyable yet incongruous listening experience.

God Is an Astronaut

From Wikipedia:
God Is an Astronaut are an instrumental/post-rock three piece band hailing from the Glen of the Downs, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.

For a long time the only GIAA album I had in my library was "All is Violent, All is Bright," which I thought was some of the most beautiful instrumental music I'd ever heard.

Recently I was able to obtain Far From Refuge, The End of the Beginning, and the self-titled album.

All is Violent, All is...
