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.

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!

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.

I've got two albums by MGMT and like them, but I can't profess to be a diehard fan of the band. Nevertheless, I've had very good luck buying CDs in this "Late Night Tales" series, so I was quite interested to hear which songs and bands that the MGMT guys picked for their set. Not counting the spoken word track by Paul Morley at the end of the CD, there are 19 songs on the album and every single one of them is worth hearing. So yeah, I don't mind proclaiming these sensational selections!

The oldest song on here is probably the Charlie Feather track. Oddly, they don't list the recording date for this song, but Feathers recorded from the 1950s through the 1980s, so this track falls somewhere in that range. For me, the coolest discoveries were some very obscure songs by very obscure artists from the 1970s; a Mark Fry song from 1972, a Dave Bixby song from 1971, and a Great Society song from the 1960s (although no exact date is listed). Throw in some ultra-cool songs by under-appreciated 1980s acts such as Durutti Column (can never get enough of Vini Reilly!), Julian Cope, Television Personalities, the Wake (wow, haven't heard them in way too long!), Jacobites (Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth: a MUST listen!), the Chills (awesome guitar jangle from New Zealand), along with some vintage Velvet Underground, Suicide and Martin Rev, and you have a superb compilation. Dig in and discover; lots of essential music on this album!

Like all volumes in this series, the CD comes with a booklet that has short "summaries" of each track written by the guest artist, in this case MGMT. Normally, the featured artist will give some background on the song or explain why it was chosen.

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.
