New MGMT – Siberian Breaks (Ed Banger All Star Remix)

MGMT
MGMT’s 12-minute epic ‘Siberian Breaks’ from their latest album “Congratulations” has been remixed by SO ME, Breakbot and Busy P. The song is bascially in three sections; the first being a piano ballad, the next has a funky-new wave tinge to it and the last section seems like a last minute edition is a heavy electronic, disco infused coda. You can listen to the song below and learn how to get it here.

MGMT performed an acoustic session bacl in June and peformed the song ‘Congratulations’. It was peformed in bare bones fashion which mainly highlighted the acoustic guitar in the track. Unfortunately we dont’ get to hear the awesome synth solo at the end of the song like in the studio version. You can download the song below and watch the performance.

MGMT appeared on NPR’s World Cafe last week and performed some songs from their second album “Congratulations”.

They don’t perform ‘Flash Delirium’ which you would expect but their 12-minute epic from the album ‘Siberian Breaks’. You can listen to the session here. The setlist for the session is below.
