CURRENT: MGMT – “Alien Days”

After the considerable backlash to Congratulations, the guys of MGMT took some time out of the spotlight, even as their songs continued to find their ways into hip-hop beats. The duo returned with the “cassingle” of “Alien Days,” which first saw release through Record Store Day on 4/20.

Now out on SoundCloud, the song is a psychedelic trip, albeit one set in the universe of “Weekend Wars” and not “It’s Working.” Andrew VanWyngarden and Benjamin Goldwasser have certainly refined their compositional skills, crafting one of their most melodic tracks in the process.

The band will apparently be releasing their new album in June. May the countdown commence.
