Afternoon Links: MGMT Would Like You to Know ‘Your Life Is a Lie’

MGMT’s video for “Your Life Is a Lie” has everything, like the musical equivalent of a Stefon nightclub: a fake book by Daryl Oates, Flipper, a fetus, a choir, basketballs with eyes, and topless people with cursive condiment messages written on their torsos. The band’s self-titled third album will be released in September, and it’s supposed to be a difficult one (Benjamin Goldwasser told Rolling Stone, “We’re not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it”). Not interested in Aphex Twin derivatives? Then perhaps you’d prefer to view the video for Mumford & Sons’ “Hopeless Wanderer,” starring Ed Helms, Jasons Bateman and Sudeikis, and Will Forte.
