Are MGMT Releasing An EDM Record?

MGMT are releasing a new record this year, and it sounds like the shape-shifting duo of Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden will continue their penchant for genre-hopping with a record they’ve told Rolling Stone has been influenced by house music and Aphex Twin. The record should be out sometime in June.

Aphex Twin is clearly the “good stuff” but making a house-inspired record is interesting in the context of a band who says Columbia is not pressuring them to make a “top 40 record.”

One things for sure… no one really knows what the hell to expect from this one.
