Previously at the ICA - Events
5 Mar 2008
The expectation placed upon a Brooklyn duo whose LP Oracular Spectacular has caused a stir not seen since days of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs/Fischerspooner/Scissor Sisters UK signings may be weighty, but the likelihood of MGMT (said 'management') letting that worry them is slim. Accordingly their music is cheesy, clichéd and thick with sarcasm as Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser realize they're "fated to pretend." Singing nostalgically about having models for wives, moving to Paris or shooting heroin the ICA is lucky to have one of the next big things in da house.
