So here's the thing: I've wanted to share this song with you for months. MGMT is one of my favorite new bands of the year. The fashion set loves them too — they've performed at numerous fashion events. "Kids" is by far my favorite song of theirs, I can listen to it over and over. But, I don't love the video. Alas, sometimes an epic song doesn't need a flashy video. I mean, the video's not horrible. The random dance clips are funny at times, I like the synchronized swimming bit, and didn't I hear a rumor the guys in the video with painted faces aren't actually the MGMT dudes? I have yet to see MGMT live — ugh — but rumors aside, this song is on my 2008 mix CD.
