    The Oracular Spectacular Demo Tape

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    MGMT's debut release isn't a demo tape per se, but it has a much rougher edge to it than their rather polished debut album, 'Oracular Spectacular'. On 'Time to Pretend', we get to hear early versions of the band's hits "Time to Pretend" and "Kids," both of which were re-recorded for their debut album, as well a four other songs. Personally, I prefer the later version of "Time to Pretend," but the version of "Kids" found on this release rivals the re-recorded version found on 'Oracular Spectacular'. Though a mere six songs in length, this EP does a rather good job of sculpting the broad sound of Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, otherwise known as MGMT. And it was these six songs that got them a phone call from Columbia Records offering them a record deal. If you're looking to get into the band's music, this is a good place to start; while not as polished as their Columbia releases, you can easily hear their broad, expansive brand of psychedelic pop.
