Video of the Moment #2784: MGMT

MGMT are releasing a new album tomorrow. In usual fashion for them, which means that they’re acting unlike any other band currently active, they’ve released a fourth track from the forthcoming LP that you can get for free if you preorder it today. The video for ‘Me and Michael’ follows a premise all too familiar to some of music history’s heroes (or villains, depending on which side you’re on). In the video, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden trawl YouTube to steal a song from another band in the Philippines. What happens next is blowing it out of proportion on what usually happens in plagiarism cases, but at least MGMT made the accompanying video to the song trippy and entertaining, if silly. Watch it below. ‘Little Dark Age’, the follow-up to 2013’s ‘MGMT’, will be out tomorrow on Columbia Records. For more on MGTF here on TGTF, come through.
