If you haven’t heard of MGMT, you’re missing out for more reasons than one. We’ve just discovered a truly valid motivation as to why you should definitely give them a listen: the lead singer of the band, Andrew VanWyngarden, lived in Pittsburgh from 1985 to 1993! VanWyngarden’s dad was even the editor of Pittsburgh Magazine before moving the family to Memphis. The critically acclaimed band arrived on the scene in 2007 with Oracular Spectacular and have been nominated for two Grammy’s. Their abstract sound and style and refusal to do anything that’s so-called “expected” of them is what makes them fresh and interesting; MGMT is exactly what’s needed in the music world right now.  Their new album, Congratulations, was just released in April: listen to it…after all, the singer did live in Pittsburgh for how many years, right? And VanWyngarden was always seen sporting Jaromir Jagr jerseys, and loved the Pirates, and he’s unbelievably cute, and he makes great music. I mean, what else could you ask for?
