The premiere of "Congratulations"

Receiving an email from the staff of MGMT to inform me of the new video "Congratulations" has been such a surprise!
Until now just a few people could see it...but from now on, everybody can. You just have to go to MGMT official website or you can simply press the play button below and enjoy the show!

The song isn't bad at all...a lot better, actually, than "Flash Delirium", which I find being such a bad choice for MGMT's comeback!
The video is nice and it perfectly reflects the 2010 trend: the desert. 
I wonder why 2010, more than any other, has been the YearOfTheDesert: movies, music videos, photo shoots and almost everything took place in the desert...have you noticed?!

The end of the world is bigger than love

A few days ago I've watched a movie that I've been wanting to see since the first day it came out: "I Love Radio Rock". If you like old-fashioned music, that's the movie for you...
It's about a pirate ship anchored off in the North Sea that broadcasts rock music 24/7. It sounds like nothing special, but at that time (the 60s) the situation was slightly more problematic than today: rock music was seen by the government as music for drug addicts, young hotheads and dissidents. The soundtrack of this music, as you can easily imagine, is fantastic...I'm listening to it since the day I saw the film.
As I'm now drowned into this fantastic world of old-school music, I decided to post this song. It reminds me of the music from the 50s and the 60s in its rhythm and in its cadence, and it's also perfectly consistent with the music I'm listening to right now...Hope you like it!

Call me up before you're dead, we can make some plans instead

Finally, after almost a month, I'm back...I've had so much going on that I couldn't even stop for one sec and think about my blog...but I can tell you, I've been missing it a lot. It's nice to have a place to share your discoveries with your friends and followers. I promise I'll try not to stay away so long again!
Even if I've been away for so long, I don't have much to present terms of numbers, I mean.
Today has been a pretty weird day...sunny, then rainy, then sunny again...and now, guess what, it's raining again.
As this day has been strange, I'm going to present you some "strange" kind of music, music that you don't listen to everyday. It's nice to occasionally drown into rhythms that we don't know, that are not familiar. And that's what I'm doing tonight...escaping (mentally, unfortunately).
