MGMT

MGMT于2002年在纽约布鲁克林成立,是一支迷幻电子合成流行乐的乐队。当时Ben Goldwasser和Andrew VanWyngarden同在康乃狄克州卫斯理大学读书,大一的时候他们一起做音乐,于是组成了二人乐团,乐团本名The Management,但Andrew和Ben发觉这个名字已给人采用,于是改名MGMT。Andrew VanWyngarden负责声乐、吉他、键盘,而Ben Goldwasser则负责声乐、键盘、合成器、鼓。早年出过一张Demo专辑《Climbing To New Lows》,2005年时遭泄漏在网上流传。

2005年由一个小唱片公司Cantora Records发行首张专辑EP《Time to Pretend》。2006年签约哥伦比亚唱片公司。由The Flaming Lips的制作人Dave Fridmann监制,发行首张专辑《Oracular Spectacular》,先于2007年10月以数码形式发表,2008年1月正式发行,不但在英、美两地专辑排行榜称冠,年终更由英伦音乐周报《NME》选为年度最佳专辑,亦同时获得格莱美最佳新人提名。此时乐队仅有Andrew和Ben二人包办所有音乐制作,因为人手有限他们采用了电子制作的模式,但他们真正喜欢的摇滚乐,痴迷于Spacemen 3和Royal Trux等独立摇滚乐队。此张专辑在全球售出超过一百万张,许多单曲被广泛运用到好莱坞电影、美国电视剧、时装表演和电玩游戏等不同媒介中。连保罗(Paul McCartney)也在2009年邀请他们担任音乐会暖场乐队。此时,《Oracular Spectacular》的录制过程中只是二人组合的MGMT,在现场演出时会变成为五人乐团。

而在2010年发行专辑《Congratulations》,MGMT扩展出了固定的五人乐团阵容。此次担任监制的是Spacemen 3 / Spectrum / E.A.R.的Sonic Boom,他亦客串Vintage Synth,并介绍了曾为Apollo 440作画的著名Lowbrow Art设计师Anthony Ausgang给MGMT,为他们操刀唱片封面。《Congratulations》,虽在在全美卖出了80多万张的好成绩,却遭致唱片公司不满其毫无进步,而乐队主脑Andrew Vanwyngarden则抱怨唱片公司干预乐队的音乐创作。
