In an interview in the current issue of Rolling Stone, MGMT speak on their “even wilder…synth-heavy third album.”

For the better part of the past year, MGMT have been holed up at a woodsy cabin outside Buffalo, New York, that resembles a Rube Goldberg version of a recording studio.

MGMT are getting even weirder on their follow-up, tentatively due out in June. Instead of using their live band, as they did on Congratulations, the core duo recorded alone, cherry-picking the best parts of their free-form jams to construct tracks that reflect the Aphex Twin and house records they’ve been listening to lately. Says Ben Goldwasser, “We’re not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it.”

Aphex Twins!

The duo goes on to mention a few song titles, which are sure to make any MGMT fan froth at the mouth –– “Mystery Disease” and “Alien Days.” Chew on that.
