Cosmic forces were at work when MGMT's co-founders, Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser met over ten years ago at Wesleyan University. Drawn together by a mutual love of mystic paganism, the duo signed to Columbia Records in the eve of 2006. On a mission to sprinkle the music industry with weirdness and unpredictability the band delivered their debut album "Oracular Spectacular" in 2008. The record garnered the band three Grammy nominations, along with numerous accolades across the globe, including landing at #18 on Rolling Stone magazine's Top 100 albums of the decade.
2010's "Congratulations" was conceived even before "Oracular Spectacular"'s release! The "musically adventurous" eclectic mixture of tracks may have sounded a little confusing to some, but that's only because MGMT's unconventional pop structures reflect the chaotic vibrations of the world -- and who can realistically make sense of that? "Congratulations" debuted at #2 on the US Billboard 200 and #4 in the UK, going on to become one of the most talked about albums of the past decade.
Performing live as a five piece, MGMT continue to entertain through multiple TV appearances (including covering Pink Floyd's "Lucifer Sam" on Jimmy Fallon in while decked out in hardened fisherman's gear), a steady stream of music festival performances around the world, curating the latest edition of the "Late Night Tales" music compilation, and remaining precocious and curious under-30 wunderkind. Via their recorded music medium, the endlessly experimental and spontaneous duo have stayed true to their precarious nature.
