The MGMT (WIP) Project



MGMT (or "The Management" pre-2005) is an electronic duo started by two guy who met in university. they currently have 3 albums under their belt and have stated that another is finished and ready for release later this year (2017). With tracks like "Kids" and "Time to Pretend", and lesser known gems like "Flash Delirium" and "Alien Days", I can safely say that I'm anticipating the upcoming 4th album.


I've been humming and hawing about doing this for a while. The school semester just started, but I've been listening to them a lot recently (the first two albums especially) and I can just see the Rock Band highways with the midi notes in my head. Obviously - as evidenced by the post - I've decided to tackle It.


Now I'll need help, I am starting to chart pro-keys and vocals, but I don't consider myself to be that good at it. So if anyone would like to contribute, let me know in the thread or PM or whatever. Any and all help is appreciated since it lets me release customs faster. I think that given I have a terrible release history I'm not going to release packs, but when a song is done, then it's done and I won't save it for a pack release. This means a) I won't forget about the track since I'll be released when it's done, and B) you get more customs faster! Yay!

First song, "Pieces of What"




This song is a pretty short, ballad type piece. Very simple, but it's a song that feels long and short at the same time. The instrumentation build from a simple acoustic guitar pattern, adding in the bass and keys, finally with the drums at the end to give the song that extra punch. The song then ends (rather abruptly) with a string section that carries the vocal melody that preceded it. It's simple, layered, and is a song that one can easily get lost to.

Just in time for the weekend...




The second track off their debut album. This song features a really nice vocal part, that kinda soars on the track. This album as a whole features some great song writing, the chords and flow of the song just fit, and you kinda get lost in it all. The lyrics don't really make much sense, kinda singing about nonsense, but a lot of MGMT tracks do that. 


This track to me is highly overlooked, serving as the song that has to come after "Time to Pretend" I think it often gets over shadowed by it. It's a great song, fun instrumental parts, and another to add to the MGMT collection.
