Here’s your first listen to an album MGMT have suggested not everyone will be able to understand on first listen. (We certainly didn’t. Read SPIN’s ‘MGMT’ review here.) The psych-glam duo’s self-titled third LP is due out on September 17 via Columbia Records, but the whole thing is streaming now thanks to Rdio. The band released an amusing teaser video for the album last week; we’ve also heard “Your Life Is a Lie” (performed on Letterman), “Alien Days,” and a live version of “Mystery Disease.” Reported influences on MGMT include Aphex Twin and house music. Hear for yourself below while catching up on our 2008 MGMT cover story.
