MGMT's Video for "Time to Pretend" + The Winter Tour

DATELINE: BROOKLYN, NY -

With a brand new album, "Oracular Spectacular" in fine indie rock stores this week, the second leg of MGMT's Winter Tour is now underway. If you recall, MGMT toured briefly in support of Kevin Barnes' Of Montreal - then followed that up with a full length waltz with the Fiery Furnaces. (On December 10th, Great Scott hosted a memorable evening with those two bands along with fellow New Yorkers Michael Goodman and the Mike.)

In 2008, MGMT embarks on a fresh tour, co-headlining with YeaSayer. They found some time, somewhere, in between their shows and shoveling snow to make a video for the track "Time to Pretend" from the "Oracular Spectacular" album.
Here's the video premiere:

What a great band. Along with "Why?" I think they're kicking off 2008 in an incredible way.
