MGMT - Congratulations (2010)

Mi nueva y reciente adquisición es el disco que hoy os presento: "Congratulations", de MGMT. Este grupazo nos prometió algo totalmente diferente a lo que ya conocíamos de ellos, algo distinto a la fórmula mágica de su disco debut, y creedme que lo han conseguido: "Congratulations" es toda una ópera psicodélica, todo un atrevimiento del que salen muy bien parados.

El grupo ha decidido colgar íntegramente este disco en su Web Oficial, donde se puede escuchar de manera totalmente gratuita (todo un puntazo por su parte). De hecho, no se va a publicitar ni uno sólo de los temas como single, ya que parece ser que el disco al completo es una unidad, y se quiere conservar como tal. Desglosemos un poco su tracklist:

1. It's Working
2. Song for Dan Treacy
3. Someone's Missing
4. Flash Delirium
5. I Found a Whistle
6. Siberian Breaks
7. Brian Eno
8. Lady Dada's Nightmare
9. Congratulations

Aunque no contemos con ningún single, os dejo con la letra de Congratulations, tema que cierra el disco, y con una actuación en directo, para que la disfrutéis... ¡Que ya es sábado! :). Y por cierto... ¡Muy original la portada de su disco! Me ha gustado mucho.

CONGRATULATIONS (CONGRATULATIONS - 2010)

Everyone
It's not a paid vacation
Your sons and daughters
Are sitting? setting? fishes down at the station
The tide may seem to swell when all is well
But they still....[muffled-ish]

Out with the weapons
It's not a blaze of glory
You look down from the temples
Pull it together? and make it a story

Tears on marble something something
It was always lost
It was never heard

I've been sold to make me poise
But you don't know how the money's spent
To break my stays and draw my lines
So I can't tell what's really there
And all I need's a great big congratulations

We'll keep the trail warm
Pay attention for me
As strange as it seems, I'd rather dissolve
Than have you ignore me
If God made the looming plans go
I tried my best to ignore that (bad land? muffled bit)

The difference is clear
You throw in an apology
Rest in the new year (?)
Dusky dawns always been ...something…
It started the simple stop of (?)
All the ways they sought to tame me

It turned your luck into a mistress
It kept on coming back a smile
You seen my face at half past guilt
And lay down the quilts upon the lawn
Spread my arms -
A circle of congratulations



Saluditos, :)
