following their critically acclaimed debut, 'congratulations' is the second studio album from brooklyn duo mgmt. the distinctive electro-pop that yielded hits from 'oracular spectacular' has been traded for a psychedelic sound where influences from ex-spacemen 3 producer peter kember are evident. in an attempt to encourage fans to experience the album as a whole, members ben goldwasser and andrew van wyngarden refrained from releasing any singles from the set. a comedy of manners of the mind, 'congratulations' finds mgmt's droll humour simmering in songs full of melodic invention and lyric mystery while opening up a luxurious new world of sound and sensation. a collection of nine complex and soulful musical tours de force written and recorded throughout most of 2009, 'congratulations' creates its own space and time with hints of music from the past five decades whirling in its etherous atmosphere.
