We’re all aware of the disappointment machine that is MGMT at this point. Be it new music or their live show, it seems like people are constantly upset with MGMT.

This along with the other previously released track “Alien Days” might be a bit of a shock to those who are still obsessed with Oracular Spectacular and may even take some Congratulations fans by surprise. Check out the song “Your Life Is a Life” off the album MGMT out September 17th below. Read More…

You don’t normally hear of a lot of original-sounding bands coming out of Austin, in fact Texas as a whole tends to follow the same twangy style of country lines. That was, until Shakey Graves.

Take a look at a live video for his song “Roll the Bones” courtesy of the Good Music Club. Read More…
