Biography


MGMT is a duo formed by Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden during their freshman year at Wesleyan University. They originally made music under the moniker of LCD Soundsystem, but changed it later on because the name is already used by another band.

Before being signed to Columbia Records in 2006, they worked as an indie act, releasing two mixtapes "We (Don't) Care" in 2004 and "Climbing to New Low" in the next year. They also toured with Of Montreal for their opening act.
