MGMT - Congratulations
Check out the new video for MGMT's newest single, "Congratulations." The song is a nice departure from their usual heavy bass, synth infused party pop songs and showcases Andrew VanWyngarden's vocals quite nicely.
As for the video itself, it's a bit of an odd one. It's about a strange dinosaur esque bird that's slowly losing parts of itself as it walks across the desert as MGMT help it along. While it's odd, it certainly isn't as odd as their last video for "Flash Delerium," which is insane! It's like Wes Anderson meets Terry Gilliam in a John Carpenter movie. Yea, that crazy.
UPDATE: So it seems that Sony doesn't want to play nice and decided to take down the video that they had posted a few days ago. Here's a working link to the video. Also, came across a nice acoustic video of the song from when MGMT played it live on Letterman. Check it out here unless Sony or some other giant business conglomerate has decided to take that down too.
