MGMT Jazzes Up “Electric Feel” With Jon Batiste & Stay Human [Watch]

first_imgIt’s hard to believe its been more than a decade since MGMT took the world by storm with their psych-pop masterpiece Oracular Spectacular. While the band’s next three albums were all adventurous (and divisive) departures from their 2007 debut, the record’s beloved singles—”Electric Feel,” “Time To Pretend,” and “Kids”—still manage to pique the interest of damn near anyone who qualifies as a millennial.Despite the enduring popularity of these tunes, it was still somewhat surprising to hear that MGMT intended to play a rendition of “Electric Feel” during their Monday night appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. After all, the group is currently promoting their brand new fourth album, Little Dark Age, so falling back on an old favorite sounded like an unconventional choice. Fortunately, MGMT delivered in spades with an unexpected reimagining of the classic that found them collaborating with The Late Show’s own Jon Batiste & Stay Human. If you ever found yourself grooving out to the neo-psychedelic-dance-magic of “Electric Feel,” this a performance you won’t want to miss.MGMT – “Electric Feel” feat. Jon Batiste & Humanlast_img
