Is this the UK version of MGMT?

LATE OF THE PIER stems from Nottinghamshire, UK and gives us a tighter, more complex version of MGMT’s electric feeling college sound. This group employs theatrical, fast paced sounds as their representative medium. They combine funk, Gary Numan, Frank Zappa, Ratatat’s newer album (specifically the song “Mirando”) with emo lyrics to supply us with music that can be best understood in the above image. Deep electric “oo’s” serve as a smooth bass line in song “The Bears are Coming”.

Here is linked a great way to listen to the bands music. On their homepage is a psychedelic collage of mountains and somewhat fossilized instruments. Drag your mouse along the image to hear songs from their new album “Fantasy Black Channel”. Click the other links on their site to look at videos and band products.
