Cosmic forces were at work when MGMT's co-founders, Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser met over ten years ago at Wesleyan University. Drawn together by a mutual love of music and mysticism, the duo signed to Columbia Records in the eve of 2006. On a mission to sprinkle the music industry with unpredictability the band delivered their critically acclaimed debut album, Oracular Spectacular, in 2008. The record garnered the band three Grammy nominations, along with numerous accolades across the globe, including landing at #18 on Rolling Stone magazine's Top 100 albums of the decade. The album was certified Platinum and has spawned three Platinum singles as well. With 2010's Congratulations’ the band took a less electronic approach and unconventional pop structures which reflected the chaotic vibrations of the world. Congratulations debuted at #2 on the US Billboard 200 and #4 in the UK, going on to become one of the most talked about albums of the past decade.
Formed in 2007, Kuroma is the brainchild of Hank Sullivant. After various lineups and two albums (Paris and Psychopomp) Sullivant joined forces with Simon OConnor, James Richardson, and Ted Humphrey in early 2012.Four Songs For Fifty Statesis the groups first recording shortly after forming and was just released on the Bigger Splash label in the UK, mixed by Emery Dobyns (Patti Smith) who volunteered his services after seeing the quartets debut at Glasslands in Brooklyn.
Will Berman has since replaced Ted Humphrey on drums. Kuroma will support MGMT on a North American tour this spring. The group is currently finishing its upcoming album Kuromaroma with Ben Goldwasser (MGMT) producing.
