The Never-Before-Released 14 Minute B-Side Available On Limited Edition 10" Etched Vinyl! MGMT is Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, two psychic pilgrims whose paths first intersected in the green pastures of Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, circa 2002. The pair was drawn to the music of other duos and found themselves incorporating the implications of the hallucinatory power-twee of the Incredible String Band, the roaring subway minimalist electronica of Suicide, the silky pop-soul of Hall & Oates, the pulsing narcotic trance of Spacemen 3, the avant-garde industrial romanticism of Royal Trux and much more into the constantly evolving sounds of MGMT.

Originally a B-side on the band's debut E.P., "Time to Pretend," this song got its official release on August 18, 2008, and peaked at #2 on Billboard's Hot Singles Sales chart in September 2008. Give it a listen and you'll immediately understand why. Not only is the music utterly hypnotic--growing from a tiny seed to blossom into a beautiful flower--but the lyrics are surprisingly intelligent, referencing the psychologist Carl Jung--"Metanoia" is a psychoanalytic theory developed by Jung himself--as well as the religious teacher Swami Satchidananda.
Whether you shell out the extra bucks to get this on hot wax or simply get the download (the $0.99 pricepoint is pretty nice!), this is one song that truly should be in every music-lover's collection.
