MP3: MGMT - Daytrotter Session


Continuing to promote their trippy and left-field (but pretty damn good!) 2010 record Congratulations, the Brookyn duo behind MGMT stopped by Echo Mountain studios in North Carolina with their full five-piece touring band to record a few songs for the always-impressive live sessions website Daytrotter during the inaugural MoogFest. The band played three highlights from Congratulations -– all the songs sound great with added guitar and drum heft, especially the wandering interplay of bright riffs all over “Song for Dan Treacy” – and a cover of influential 80s post-punkers Cleaners of Venus’ “Only a Shadow.” Listen to the whole session below:
