USA, 2008, indietronica / indie pop / synthpop
MGMT – Oracular Spectacular: Apparently this album was played a lot at college parties. Since I missed that whole scene, I am able to enjoy this album. This is, however, one of the most front-loaded albums I’ve ever heard. As a bonus, I love how they got Joanna Newsom to play the mom in the video of “Kids”. That song is such an earworm that everything after it on the album, though good, suffers by comparison.
