“When we first wrote that song, we were laughing so hard… Andrew [VanWyngarden] just reminded me of that, that we thought it was the funniest thing we’d ever heard. And then we got used to it, it started to sound more normal. It’s not a single, but we thought it was a good way to entice people to listen to the whole record. I’m sure there are plenty of people who think it’s completely weird and not what they were expecting… I’m sorry.”
— MGMT’s Ben Goldwasser “apologizes” (via Spinner) for the band’s recently released “Flash Delirium”. The track, which served as the first taste of the forthcoming Congratulations, was really more of a crazy and chaotic acid trip than actual music. Sorry, someone had to say it.
