The psychedelic pop swirl of MGMT's album Oracular Spectacular expanded their audience way beyond the guerrilla gigs they played as college kids in Connecticut, and won them some unexpected supporters. Next up MGMT will wrap up their new album, 'Congratulations', which they've been working on the album in Malibu with producer Pete Kember - Sonic Boom - ex-Spacemen 3. Sam Wicks talks other-people's-music with the Brooklyn-based pop alchemist's, Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser.
