MGMT - 'Kids'

Although this song was the first from last year's album that got my attention it's apparently taken this long for them to release an 'official' video. As with their other videos, it's brilliantly bizarre and borders on child abuse...

"Kids" has proven to be some kind of monster with a life of its own, both an albatross and a plate of mac and cheese with fake bacon, and the process of creating this video was nearly as convoluted and veiny as the general style of this here letter of introduction. As Jerry Garcia once rudely remarked about the eventual and unavoidable filling in (with sand) of the historic United States Grand Canyon, "What a long strange rip it's been." - via -
