We like MGMT at Assault. And we’re eagerly anticipating their new album, Congratulations. It drops April 13th on Columbia Records and will probably incite fevered spaz-dancing in our headquarters until we get tired and sweaty (or run out of designer drugs). They released a tracklist last week, but now we have something even better: the cover art. And it is amazing – the kind of thing you can stare at for hours, provided you have the proper chemical accompaniment.

I mean, wow – just look at that thing! Artwork is courtesy of Anthony Ausgang, a guy who probably knows his way around the fun kind of mushrooms. This has to tie with Yeasayer’s Odd Blood cover as strangest of the year (so far).
