The Billboard
MGMT is a neo-psychedelic group which formed in 2002 in Brooklyn, New York, United States. The band consists of multi-instrumentalists Andrew VanWyngarden (vocals, guitar, keyboards, drums) and Ben Goldwasser (vocals, keyboards, synths, drums), both alumni of Wesleyan University. Originally the band was named “Management,” but it was later changed when they found out there were several other bands with that name.

Their most popular songs are “Time to Pretend” , which has been featured on the motion pictures “21” and “Sex Drive” and on the TV shows “Skins”, “Gossip Girl” & “90210”, (the music video has reached over 6,000,000 views on YouTube) and “Electric Feel”, their most purchased single on iTunes.

Electronic Indie Dance Rock began as a thesis project from music majors at Wesleyan University. They used to be known as “The Management” with songs about not quite growing up and a lot of nonsense. Despite this, ‘MGMT’ is pronounced by saying each letter.

Andrew VanWyngarden, one of the MGMT figureheads, is currently collaborating with of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes, with plans to release a record in 2008 under the name Blikk Fang. MGMT was on tour with Of Montreal in late 2005 (and again in 2007) and VanWyngarden appeared on stage during some performances on of Montreal’s summer ‘06 tour.
