MGMT – Electric Feel

The Brooklyn-based duo of Andrew Wyngarden and Ben Goldwasser (MGMT) have actually been making records for the best part of six years. It has only been during this year’s 80’s retro obsession, that they’ve managed to make any sort of impact.

Taken from debut album ‘Oracular Spectacular’, Electric Feel combines watered down 80’s funk with hazy synth panpipes and Boney M vocals. It’s a combination that ticks all the right boxes at the moment and it is therefore easy to see why all the usual suspects are raving about this pair.

Unfortunately, after the album release and all the subsequent tours, the retro alternative fad will inevitably shift again, and unfortunately this duo are more than likely going to find themselves back in pop exile
