Listen to TIME TO PRETEND by MGMT.
Hey there! John again. I'm standing in for Jason this Friday.
I've always had a warm fuzzy feeling about Fridays. End of the school/work week, start of the weekend - endless potential. As a kid, I'd always have my coolest clothes and my best tunes all picked out and ready for Friday. As an adult, I do the same, although I'm usually asleep on the couch by 10pm. Nonetheless, the spirit, energy, and feeling of a Friday are still there, and I'd like to pass on a tune that reminds me (at least) of the fun.
By way of introduction, I first heard this track on Ben and Stu's radio program back in mid-February and have been listening to it since. It's pop music that would've warped me had I heard it, say 10 years ago...because they're right! MGMT (which I think is a great name), also has a video (and one in 3d too!) to go along with the track, which seems to depict some kind of post-internet pagan apocalypse ritual, but not the bad kind. Anyway, I haven't yet heard the full album, but the rest of the ep is pretty good too. Have a listen and have a fun Friday!
