MGMT Scare The Hell Out Of 'Kids'

Despite my lackluster encounter with them at Austin City Limits, MGMT really do make creative videos. Case in point being the New York band's new clip for "Kids," a single which has been around since last year. Oh, well, better late than never!

Naturally the horror element appeals to D'luv's twisted senses. NME points out that the oblivious mother in the vid is singer-songwriter Joanna Newsom (who, incidentally, is also the second cousin of San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom).

    Okay, first of all, this shit is even older than you think. It's from 4 years ago...it's beat and played. I don't understand why it's suddenly popular.

    I saw them a couple of years ago at the Warhol Museum opening for Of Montreal (of Outback commercial fame) and they blew. My friends thought they were great. I'm missing something. I can't believe they won't go away.

    Fucking hipsters are behind this. They like anything that's ugly and shitty. As long as other hipsters like it too.
