Right now, I'm blogging and listening to Pandora, the Fun. radio. However, that isn't the band that I'm going to blog about. That mystery band is a group named MGMT. MGMT mainly focuses on alternative/electronic type sounds, and they're popular for songs like "Time to Pretend", "Electric Feel", and "Kids".
You may not recognize the name, but if you heard them, you'd know who I'm talking about. Their music has been featured in a few commercials, and popular on radio stations for their upbeat rythmns. If you don't normally like alt music, this is a band you'll love. The ensemble consists of two guys, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden. The duo formed the band in 2002, with only the two college students, but after releasing Time to Pretend EP, they toured and opened for the indie band Of Montreal. For concerts and certain tracks, MGMT will add members, making their live band. Their live band are Ben Goldwasser, Andrew VanWyngarden, Will Berman, James Richardson, and Matt Asti. This band was formed in Connecticut, so they are States based.
The band's website is www.whoismgmt.com , and they love to accept fan art, no matter how strange.
