They're kinda indie pop, kinda psych and kinda electronic music and indie rock ... the band that's impossible to classify: MGMT. We'll get our next chance to figure out what they sound like on their newly-announced album, which is self-titled. The release date is Sept. 17, and the album was produced by the Flaming Lips mastermind Dave Fridmann and was recorded at his Tarbox Road Studios.

The MGMT tour sounds pretty rad with what they're calling "The Optimizer," a combination of visual elements to play in real time along with the band. The press release says: "the Optimizer provides listeners of the album with a simultaneously aural & optical listening experience featuring video & CGI work by Andrew Benson, Emilio Gomariz, Geoffrey Lillemon, and Chris Timms.  "the Optimizer" is part of an enhanced album package available on all commercial formats."
