Quote of the Derp
"I like the idea of MGMT using their popularity to bring some new bands into the fold. And not just new bands but really nice sounding bands. I didn't hear of any of the other bands on this album but I gotta say that I really like them. For MGMT to vouch for all these guys it makes sense that they must meet their high musical standards which I suspect that they do."
-- Commenter Drew G. at iTunes, who rates the new MGMT release, Late Night Tales, at a full five stars
As Drew alluded to, the record is a compilation of music from some of MGMT's favorite bands and artists.
Included are tracks from the Velvet Underground, Julian Cope, the Durutti Column, Spacemen 3, Felt and the Chills.
