Listen to Little Dark Age here:
We’ve got some other new items you may be interested in as well: an LDA tote made lovingly and sustainably in Los Angeles, as well as our first ever 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle. Take a look after your 7:30 appointment - everything is available at
Today's the 4th anniversary of LDA! Revisit it in the format of your choice - MiniDisc, cassette, preferably TikTok. We’re also revealing what you’ve all been asking for - a Ltd. edition beany babie! Add this to the BB collection you’re selling on eBay and watch the bids soar!
The final track from Little Dark Age is “Hand It Over” - "Vaguely political - we started recording this at Tarbox the day after the presidential erection 2016. 'Hand it Over' hits different now."
“The middle instrumental section came from a jam we did with James in Brooklyn. Ben kept changing the chords, and somehow James’ solo just kept hitting all the right notes despite him having no idea where he was going to go next.”
Track 9 from Little Dark Age is “When You're Small” - "Ben did the vocals on the demo for this as a song about his dog that was made to sound like it was about drugs.”
Track 8 from Little Dark Age is “One Thing Left to Try” - "This was the track that took the longest to finish. We really placed a lot of stock in our artistic worth being tied up in this somehow. The original working title was 'Stefan Hawking.'" Listen:
Our friend Matthew Dear (@matthewdear ) remixed this track for us - and, in fact, the entire LDA album!…
Track 7 from LDA is “Days That Got Away” - "A slithery one. We always wanted to hear what a Dave Fridmann-mixed chillout dub track in 9/8 would sound like. Now we know.”
Listen to “James” here: And our friend @2020sonicboom remixed this track for us, we highly encourage you to take a listen: .
Track 6 from LDA is “James” - "Probability of being about James Richardson - 68%. A bunch of field recordings are buried in this one. They’re from years ago when we were getting ready to go on tour, and Ben had lent his field recorder to James to gather raw material in Brooklyn."
Track 5 from Little Dark Age is “TSLAMP” "Time Spent Looking At My Phone: A Lament. The sentiment of this song is very pre-COVID but it holds up. We had recorded a generic Verizon voicemail greeting in the middle, but there were concerns about copyright violation if we kept it."
Track 4 from Little Dark Age is “Me and Michael” - "The original refrain was “me and my girl” but we decided that was too boring, so we thought it would be funnier to make a pop song with the completely ambiguous narrative of 'me and Michael.'" Video:
By complete coincidence, Sebastian Tellier was recording next door the night we were doing the chorus vocals and graciously added his voice to the mix. The video for this one is truly trippy, born from the insane mind of our friend Glooby.
Track 3 from Little Dark Age is “When You Die” - This was a turning point for us in the making of the album. We needed to free ourselves from some of the more firmly rooted self-filtering mechanisms we tended to employ in the creative process. Watch:
It was written in February 2017 in Los Angeles - We made the verse music together, the vocal melody for the verse and chorus came to Andrew very quickly while driving back from Ben’s studio that night.
Track 2 is the title track from “Little Dark Age” - Folks on TikTok really ran with this one. The mood imagines the shame and fear and psychological terror of character assassination and mob mentality. Spooky!
First up - “She Works Out Too Much” - feels like walking into a pachinko parlor, really hectic and maniacal. It also finally fulfilled Ben’s fantasy of having a gratuitous sax solo on an MGMT track!
Our 4th album, Little Dark Age, turns 4 on Feb 9th! To usher in this little one’s birthday, we’ll be spending the next 10 days looking back at it track by track
