Time to Pretend
The TV was on, and behind some whiny teen drama on the CW (Gossip Girls?) was Time to Pretend, a song by one of my favorite bands of the moment, MGMT.
It was a shock, due less to the sellout factor (over it; $$ = <3) than the fact that the song is in some respects anti-corporate, bemoaning office jobs and advocating a drug- and model-addled life as an alternative.
Luckily for MGMT, CW didn’t hear that. They heard catchy, which they are, unquestionably. Already featured on Conan, the duo is slated to appear on The Late Late Show on June 9. Personally, I can’t wait to see what the mainstream thinks of their wonderfully psychedelic web site.
