Description (English):
Despite being founded in Connecticut by Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden in 2002, MGMT from the start sounded more Brooklyn than Bedford Avenue. Their productions are hard to describe, but if you mix psychedelic with proto-electro punk, shake it up with art noise and add some indie-pop, you just might have got the picture.

Oracular Spectacular is the first major label studio album by MGMT and ultimately enjoyed both critical approval and commercial success, with the album selling over 500,000 copies in the U.S. and going platinum in Australia, the U.K., and Ireland. Oracular Spectacular features MGMT’s signature song “Kids”, the funky track “Electric Feel” (famously covered by Weezer) and the smashing opening track “Time to Pretend”. The tunes sound classic and new all at once, paying homage to Bowie, the Kinks, and the Stones, while updating traditional progressions with flashes of Royal Trux, Ween, and LCD Soundsystem.

Oracular Spectacular was named the best album of 2008 by NME and In 2009, Rolling Stone named it the 18th-best album of the decade.

Recorded and edited 2003-2005 by Zbigniew Karkowski and Li Chin Sung in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Macau, Hong-Kong, Tokyo, San Francisco.
Revenge of Ying and Yang”由卡高斯基與香港實驗樂手李勁松合作完成,取名“陰陽”,亦暗含本次兩位元樂手音樂之間“既互相對立又互相聯繫的力量”之意。與大家熟悉的卡高斯基一向的長篇噪音作品不同,新專輯一方面保留了卡高斯基一貫超越人體生理極限的噪音音量,另一方面也突現出李勁松對聲音的多元化運用越發地得心應手,毫無懼色。新專輯中的其中一首作品更邀得日本著名先鋒樂手大友良英獻出他的暴烈噪音結它。
