“Flash Delirium” MP3

Mar 09, 2010

Fans of MGMT‘s breakout singles “Kids” and “Electric Feel” may not flip as many cartwheels for “Flash Delirium,” but here goes nothing… The Congratulations single is a head-scratching piece of psychedelia. During its 4:16 runtime we get snippets of Bowie, T. Rex, Ween, ‘60s California surf, Middle Eastern music, straight-up acid rock, and even a flute solo. (Overall, it seems like they’re suffering from a bad case of self-sabotage.)

Ex-Spacemen 3 sound-scaper Pete Kember (aka Sonic Boom) produced and by Flaming Lips collaborator David Fridmann handled mixing duties. Congratulations drops April 13th on Sony/Columbia. Apparently the title track leaked today too. Download the less manic, but still drug-addled ballad over at Hype Machine.
