For Your Eyes and Ears: MGMT on New Music Weekly

This is a very special week for our New Music Weekly video. Get an exclusive 15-second taste of MGMT’s self-titled new album and the “Optimizer”, the unique visual accompaniment created by the band. Experience the entire album and video right here — you'll only find the one-week preview on Rdio!

Let video artists Andrew Benson, Alejandro Crawford, Emilio Gomariz, Geoffrey Lillemon, and Chris Timms transport you out of this world:

"MGMT's psyche-pop space-rock has always hinted at alien, other-wordly origins; a rich territory for the possibilities of CGI and virtual worlds. Drawing on the unnatural vibrant colours and strange and mysterious landscapes of alien worlds, each of the artists who contributed to the optimizer project presents their unique virtual illumination of MGMT's alien origin, produced and arranged by MGMT's live show video instrumentalist Alejandro Crawford."
