Wild New MGMT Song: “Flash Delirium”

Download “Flash Delirium”

The new song by psych-rock duo MGMT features flutes, horns, and about seven different sections that reference doo-wop, old school rock’n’roll, electro-balladry, Ariel Pink-style lo-fi, wall-of-Spector pop, and the Beatles at their most high. “Flash Delirium” is certainly the band’s most psychedelic track to date, and all of the contrasting styles are crammed into four minutes and sixteen seconds!

The track is from MGMT’s new album, Congratulations, out April 13 on Columbia.

More MGMT information here or take the jump to learn more about a strange contest the band is hosting through its website.

Leading up to the release of their sophomore album Congratulations, the fellas in MGMT have launched a strange contest of sorts and are asking their fans to find them.

A new website, WhereIsMGMT.com, just launched and explains the game. There is an MGMT-mobile (plastered with the band’s ridiculous cover art), that will be visiting six different cities between March 10 and March 18. One hour before the van’s arrival in one of the secret locales, a message will be posted on the site giving clues that will lead fans to a location in the city and a password. The first six people to figure out where in the world the boys are will find a person holding up an MGMT flag. Upon giving the proper password from the website, a mysterious “journey” will start that will apparently take two hours. Anyone who wants to play must be at least 18 years of age and have a valid photo ID. To make sure you don’t miss a clue, follow the band’s Twitter page for more details on the contest.
