one request: could you put an end to wasting your time with dumb anons? i really enjoyed your blog until you started making snide comments at people who dont know shit about your personal likes/dislikes. or who ask dumb questions about mgmt. and those people dont deserve to appear on your blog!

So…does this count as one of those anons I should be ignoring? Because I really want to give you a sarcastic response, but you’re telling me I shouldn’t do that.

And what, exactly, counts as a dumb question? Because there are a lot of people who are new fans who might ask something that seems dumb to you, but is something they don’t actually know. 

The unfollow button is always available for your use in the upper right hand corner. I’ve always said that. If you don’t like the things I post or the way I write, make your own blog. Seriously. Do your own research about the band, keep track of press, remember to look stuff up after every show, go through the effort of posting properly credited photos, etc. 

This is my blog that I keep track of mostly for myself. It’s cool that a lot of people follow it now, but that’s not why I do it, and I don’t change how I post on it because it’s not something that everyone likes. 

I got what LP3 means, but what does it stand for? Thx

MGMT’s third album. Calling it by its title, MGMT, gets confusing. 

LP3 is my favorite album of theirs. You are the one that didn't really like it

Er, no. I never said that. I said very specifically that I like it. Nice try, better luck next time. 

Maybe you should write this all on your own blog, instead of anonymously commenting on mine?

Yeah but you keep forgeting that MGMT = ☕️ so every argument is invalid...

MGMT is…a steaming cup of coffee?

Foster the People get those comparisons because their songs are an obvious attempt to cash in on the sound of Oracular Spectacular. Tame Impala are in the same demographic as the Flaming Lips but they don't get those comparisons

Because Tame Impala doesn’t play their sets with a huge mutant bipedal crustacean walking around a neon field on a screen behind them.

It’s not just the music that gets MGMT compared to the Lips. Also, Tame impala absolutely gets those comparisons. Dunno what you’ve been reading.

ARE MGMT FUCKING RECORDING?!?!?!?!?

Dave Friddman tweeted this a few days ago from his twitter (@tarboxrd).
Andrew mentioned how they always eat lots of ice cream when recording with Dave (“..it helps the creative juices flow,”) and how they did that extensively during the process of making ‘MGMT’.
Now look to the picture from twitter. That’s Andrew’s arm on the left, with the sweater he wore during the Hellowfest just the other day which proves that this was taken recently.

Now turn your attention to this short interview from the INmusic festival a few months ago:
http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=smLV3cO60G8

Ben mentions how they’ve been getting ready to work on new music and that they were going to try once the summer ended (not to mention, in numerous past interviews they’ve been saying how they have wanted to put out new music sooner than they usually do).

In short, MGMT could be working on new music. I’m not saying they’ve officially commenced recording sessions but maybe they went in to the studio with Dave and began messing around with some ideas.

Possible? Or am I reading too much into it?

I really doubt it.

It looks more like he tweeted it in response to MGMT’s tweet that LP3 is a year old. They’ve mentioned multiple times that getting ice cream was their thing to do when they were upstate recording with Dave, so it would make sense that that is his response to LP3 being a year old. 

That’s also definitely notthe sweater that Andrew wore to Hellowfest. That sweater had blue and white stripes - the one in this photo’s stripes are thinner and different colors. I also don’t think that’s his hand. His has more veins.
