Album Review: "Loss Of Life" by MGMT (7/10)

 MGMT Records, Mom + Pop 

Producers: MGMT, Patrick Wimberly 

The indiest of darlings MGMT have long-evolved from their Oracular emergence, scratching a new artistic itch with each release. Unfortunately, this translates to alien and inaccessible tracks overshadowing the stellar gems of their catalog. This is not to say they are hard to find, “Mother Nature” and “Bubblegum Dog” are some of the band’s poppiest tunes in years, glistening, glam takes on ‘90s alt. This contrasts the folk-tinged title track, and the spacey echo chambers (“Dancing in Babylon”).
