Goddamnit I love this fucking song. It makes me want to jump off of someone’s roof into a swimming pool. I was lucky enough to stumble upon this on a trip to New York last week. I have no idea why I haven’t heard this gem yet. I think it is because I have been doing nothing but working my ass off for the last year or so. But man, am I glad I heard this diddy. I just can’t stop listening to it. It just kicks ass pure and simple. It makes me want to kick a door down and smash a guitar into a floor. Awesome.

Honestly, this song is without a doubt the high water mark on the MGMT album Oracular Spectacular. It is a very high water mark however. I am a lyrics man, since I used to write them and did my best at being a lead singer in a band or two when I was a young pup, and damnit it all to hell if I don’t just love the vicious unrepentant rock anthem lyrics in this song.

Don’t get me wrong there are some other tasty licks on this album but this one just turns my crank. Hard.

    yeah great song… a lot of visuals cue’d from the cult classic Holy Mountain. I’ve seen a lot of that lately. Santogold’s last vid rips from it too.
