Dystimulation

Music and other modern musings

Kids

I truly believed that the wave that was MGMT that permeated every dj set for nearly a year was long over and replaced by the likes of Passion Pit and La Roux. But this weekend I was proven wrong when I witnessed Toronto’s Keys N Krates open with a jam-band version of Kids and Million Dollar Mano incorporate the same tune into the intro of his set, which, if I may take the time to say so, was awesome despite his complete lack of stage presence. Last week, URB mag nominated Kids for Song of the Decade. Now don’t get me wrong, the song is good (okay, great), but this nomination leads me to question if URB has the same perverted fools working for them as Billboard, who recently nominated Nickelback for band of the decade (who were, in contrast, voted worst band in the world by the Uk’s Word magazine), rulling out other competitors like Jay Z and Beyonce. I never thought I would ever be given the chance to utter the name Nickelback on this site. Anyhow, I digress, I awoke this a.m. to find this semi-dubstep take on MGMT’s hit on Audioporn Central. I guess the wave simply retracted to build some strength. Or perhaps its the end of the year and people are feeling particularly nostalgic as they prepare themselves for the holidays. Either way, enjoy.
