MGMT “Your Life Is A Lie”

“Your Life Is A Lie”

I avoided these punks for as long as I could until I threw in the ol’ towel and embraced the dance within Oracular Spectacular. Sue me. Long story kinda short I now find myself in the position of defending these pricks on the constant and it doesn’t feel natural.

“I heard they suck live.”

I saw them live and had a blast.

“Everything they do seems so contrived.”

They took a hard right on “Congratulations” and alienated most of their audience but… fine.

What will be, will be. I have seen this video 9 times now and I’m convinced that it’s one of the best acid flashbacks to come down the pipeline in a long, long time. “Your Life Is A Lie” in my humble opinion, needs to be heard with these visuals and I for one will never be able to listen to it again without picturing the scenes that are now burned into my brain from repeated viewings. No other group exploits a man biting a banana quite like MGMT and for that I give ’em mad props.

Let the freak flag fly.
