Video: MGMT -- “Time To Pretend”
I guess this is old news, but I just saw this video for the first time on Subterranean last week (higher-resolution QT version). Holy moly, this is as accurate a portrayal of the how it feels to be on drugs as anything I’ve seen or heard since that first track on Kid A, whatever it’s called.
So who is this MGMT? And how come nobody (I trust) tipped me to them until now? The album, Oracular Spectacular, came out on Columbia (Sony-BMG) in January, but their Time to Pretend EP was released in 2005(!) on an indie label.
They recently re-did the video in 3D, and you can watch that and their appearance on Letterman after the jump…
Make your own 3D glasses (if you don’t already have a pair).
