On September 17, 2013, one year ago yesterday, MGMT released their self title album. It was the third studio release for the band. A month before the release, they were invited to sing the lead single from the forthcoming album, Your Life Is A Lie on the David Letterman show.
In true MGMT fashion Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, who met and formed the band in 2002 at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, left the people watching wondering what the hell they had just witnessed.
This week’s Throwback Thursday takes us back to, what I think, is one of the best and most odd performances ever given by the band.
