Okay . . . I guess I had this coming ever since I saw Preston Pohl’s Blind Audition performance in The Voice US Season 5.
The funny thing was, exactly an hour before hearing the audition on TV, I was listening to Time To Pretend. How coincidental is that?!
Five years later it all rushed back. Thanks to that TV audition my love for MGMT was immediately resuscitated. Even my sister (who is totally NOT into psychedelic rock, indie or just plain rock) started liking the song, too — whether it’s the original MGMT version or Preston’s.
According to Wikipedia, Electric Feel had a recent “resurgence in sales and exposure” after Pohl’s performance in The Voice US. That is — I think — a very auspicious thing considering MGMT has a new album out this year.
For those who wanted to watch/hear the original record, check the video below.
Last is the reason for the resurgence. Preston Pohl’s full-length cover of Electric Feel as heard in The Voice US Season 5.
There you go . . . three versions of Electric Feel by MGMT.
Like all the other posts for Versions, I want to remind everyone that it’s just a matter of preference whether the original is better than the cover versions or vise versa.
