MGMT's Sophomore Album Congratulations Available for Stream


It seems to be happening more and more nowadays: albums get leaked online weeks before they’re slated for official release. It’s happened to some of the most anticipated albums of the past year: The Blueprint 3, Blakroc, Contra, Man on the Moon, the list goes on. MGMT’s latest album Congratulations is no exception; the followup to 2008’s smash hit Oracular Spectacular wasn’t supposed to be released until mid-April, yet copies of the album are floating around the web.

Instead of trying to fight the leak though, the guys have seemed to embrace it.

From their site:

Hey everybody, the album leaked, and we wanted you to be able to hear it from us. We wanted to offer it as a free download but that didn’t make sense to anyone but us
My take on the album? They definitely have a different sound. Whether that’s good or bad, I can’t say after only 2 listens through the album. I’m definitely noticing much more use of the guitar and less keyboard though. The songs seem rather slow and bland compared to such gems as “Time to Pretend,” “Electric Feel,” and “Kids.”

New Radiohead Song 'These Are My Twisted Words' Leaked


So I stumbled across this gem earlier today. It’s supposedly a new Radiohead song entitled “These Are My Twisted Words” that isn’t due to be released for quite some time that has seemingly surfaced out of nowhere. I initially had my doubts as to whether this was the real deal or not, but after giving it a good couple of listens, it’s definitely the unmistakable voice of Thom Yorke. It reminds me of the sound and style showcased on one of Radiohead’s greatest albums, Kid A. Take a listen and tell me what you think.

The release of this track comes just a few days after Thom Yorke said Radiohead will not be releasing a new album anytime soon.

“None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again,” he said. “Not straight off…It worked with In Rainbows because we had a real fixed idea about where we were going. But we’ve all said that we can’t possibly dive into that again. It’ll kill us. …obviously, there’s still something great about the album,” Yorke said. “In Rainbows was a particular aesthetic and I can’t bear the idea of doing that again. Not that it’s not good, I just can’t…bear…that.”
