Late Nite Tales presents roughly 20 tracks designed to showcase MGMT's various influences. True to the group's second album (Congratulations) this collection is a relatively subdued affair, featuring mostly lo-fi, slow-tempo songs. The beauty of this collection is how well these selections fit together, creating a very cohesive whole.

Standout tracks include: "Cheree" by Suicide, "For Belgian Friends" by The Durutti Column, "Lord Can You Hear Me?" by Spaceman 3, and of course, MGMT's cover of "All We Ever Wanted Was Everything."

As a fair warning, this album may not work for those seeking equivalents to "Kids" or "Electric Feel," who may do better to investigate Neon Indian's latest album Era Extrana instead.

It is often very difficult to pinpoint the influences of a band when listening to their music. While some bands wear their influences on their sleeves, others tend to be inspired by their favorite artists while crafting a sound that is completely out of this world. MGMT is very much the latter, something of a new age psychedelic romp in electronic music. It's a bit like dancing through a field of synthesizers while tripping on acid...or so I imagine.

Late Night Tales is a very unique music collections series. Established in 2001, Late Night Tales invites the world's best artists to delve deep into their music collections to create the ultimate "late night" selection. The series features expertly curated mixes by MGMT, Friendly Fires, the Flaming Lips, Metronomy, Groove Armada, the Cinematic Orchestra, Four Tet, Belle & Sebastian, Jamiroquai, Midlake, Arctic Monkeys, and more top artists. Each offering includes an exclusive cover version by the artist and a spoken word story narrated by the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Will Self, Bootsy Collins, Brian Blessed, and Patrick Moore. In other words, Late Night Tales is music and stories worth staying up for. More to the point, Late Night Tales is an in-depth look at the artists that have influenced and inspired the music of MGMT.

The vinyl edition provides a slightly altered version of the CD/digital editions, dropping two of the tracks and altering the sequencing in order to fill up both sides of the two 180 gram vinyl records without spilling over onto a third LP. However, a bonus copy of the CD as well as the liner notes are included to provide the full experience. Whether you're at home listening on your turntable, your CD player, or your MP3 player, MGMT's ultimate late night playlist is there fore you to enjoy.

I love MGMT, and was looking for some quiet songs to listen to while writing. This is a good deal (2 CDs for the price of 1). You definitely won't find any workout material here, but this is a great moody listen.

I hadn't heard any of these songs before listening to this album. They range from haunting and beautiful to creepy and freaky. Also of importance and enjoyment is hearing these songs gives one a better understanding of MGMT. I hope these songs provide a blueprint for what we can expect from these fellas on the next album.

very good for chillaxing with acoustic and downtempo tracks. little bit of mixing and effects thrown in on some of the tracks, but it doesn't detract from the overall flow of the mix. good stuff!

perfect condition, shipped earlier than expected. Amazing diverse album, i recommend this to anyone with ears and a passion for music. Plus MGMT's cover of the Bauhaus song is amazing.

This collection consist of 20 songs of MGMT's favorite bands,which includes artists such as Suicide (a huge influence on MGMT and how they make their music), Felt etc.. MGMT have not disappoint me and lived up to their legendary name. They are Gods to me because they dare to try new things and explore which in turn makes beautiful music. Long live MGMT!
