MGMT at Coachella & The Return of The Cure

MGMT is probably one of my favourite bands. Their music is perfect for turning up on the volume on your headphones and escaping over-crowded city streets to some gloriously Michel Gondry-esque world in a faraway place. You can't not fall in love with their blend of dreamy psychedelic taste-the-rainbow synthpop. I mean, for crying out loud, is the above black and white photo not evidence enough to illustrate that they're just a great bunch of guys? Whilst still at college, a lot of people described their songs as about "not quite growing up and a lot of nonsense", but I'm thinking they meant to say, songs about "not quite growing up and a lot of awesomeness". Here is a bootleg of their gig at Coachella, courtesy of the fine folks over at You Ain't No Picasso. Enjoy.
