Almost a year since the release of MGMT's much-loved debut Oracular Spectacular, the hype surrounding the band is still heating up. As much as I love the acclaimed album, I couldn't be listening to it for 12 months straight. I stumbled across something unheard of from the boys Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden that comes in the form of an EP named Metanoia which only consists a 13-minute track. MGMT does not dissapoint with Metanoia, it continues the mixing-of-genres trend in Oracular Spectacular. It opens with an acoustic, then when the piano kicks in, we hear a sound not unlike The Arcade Fire attempting a Queen before it maneuvers into a psychedelic number. I guess people in town (or the blogsphere) will still be talking about the Brooklyn psychedelic synth duo for quite awhile and I don't mind even a bit. 2008 is going to be the year of MGMT!
