Today is a big day for us at Cantora -- kind of like our own birthright back to the promised land where it all began almost 4 years go.
We heard of these two dudes out of Wesleyan University in the summer of 2005 just as they were graduating and put together a 6 song EP and some severed monster head t-shirts for their tour with Of Montreal. 4 years later we got the mastering genius Greg Calbi to re-master those 6 songs and today MGMT's first release the "Time to Pretend" EP hits stores nationwide for the first time this decade, everywhere! Even Barnes & Noble?!?
Every time we listen to the new master we hear sounds that we swore weren't there the first time we heard it, or the 100th. So fresh after all these years. It slumbered for years, only to be awakened by Calbi's magic touch. Now its your turn -- get down to the roots!
Hey, remember all the ways you used to pry open the shrink wrap on a record? No?... well today you can get nostalgic, go to a record store and cop a collector's item.
