One of my readers, Emily, alerted me about this band called MGMT, (like, you know, Management). They're yet another band a little more difficult to Google than some others. Anyway, Emily also sent along a couple mp3's from their only CD, an EP entitled Time to Pretend. She mentioned that they opened for Of Montreal when she saw, which makes some sense.
The Management makes great poppy music that's a little out there. They have their own record label (I think, they're the only artist on the label at least) Cantora Records. It's a cute site with lots of news about Mgmt. Who is in the band I have no idea, or where they're from (although I think it's Houston). I guess that doesn't really matter as long as we have the music.

EDIT: I've gotten some information from Will who runs Cantora Records about the band's background in case you're interested. The band formed at Wesleyan college from where they jut recently graduated. Half of the bad grew up in nashville and the other half in upstate New York.

Time to Pretend

Here's a video for the song "Boogie Down."
EDIT: Also, there's a video for the song "Destrokk" here.

Hi. I went to school with MGMT and, incidentally, directed the Boogie Down video. They formed at Wesleyan University, in Middletown, CT and currently reside in Brooklyn and Middletown. They will be touring with Of Montreal again in the new year.

Fucking love these guys, I saw them played a while ago at SUNY Purchase and have gone to see them every time they play NYC since. The ep is great as well, especially the last song on it "kids".

and for the record, "half" the band is from Memphis, not Nashville.
