In formulating the long list of shows I've missed and subsequently regretted, the most recent addition is a recent concert at Bottom of the Hill featuring Yeasayer (2080 is the jam) and MGMT. If pressed I would consider myself a MGMT fan; however, I am certainly vexed by my disparate levels of attraction to particular tracks. Their early 2008 full-length release, Oracular Spectacular, certainly shows some extreme talent yet the overall continuity seems, well, discontinuous. This just means that they've got some room to grow, and that's not a bad thing at all. Here's some tracks to wet your whistle.

::: MGMT - Electric Feel (wow.)
::: MGMT - Time to Pretend
::: MGMT - The Youth
