Heard It on the Internet: Burntpiano

For all the hype, the MGMT album is not that great. However, I really like this instrumental cover of "Kids.".

Burntpiano was bored at work so he just went ahead and recorded this track.

"It was a slow day at work today, so I was messing around with some new synths, trying to find new sounds. I started playing everyone's favorite synthline, and one thing led to another, and I had a half finished track. I went home and finished it up. The track I guess really isn't a remix, but rather a cover, since I didn't use any elements from the original. And the vocals (which may piss some off) are from a computer. Not anything trying to replace the original or the upcoming soulwax remix, but just something fun." (via Southside Discotech)

Spencer, I tend to agree with you, except I am not sure about the "hype". I haven't read a single thing on this album.

Kids - by far the best song on the album. I really like Electric Feel too. The rest is kind of ho-hum for me.

This is the only MGMT album I own, so perhaps I should try an earlier one?
