Watch this now: MGMT’s “Cool Song No. 2” (video)
The NYC band's new video features Michael K. Williams; plus, the psych-poppers will play the Barclays Center this winter.
Tue Sep 17 2013
Warning: A supremely weird music video awaits you here. Fans of MGMT have grown accustomed to the Brooklyn band's eccentric ways, and their new video for "Cool Song No. 2" (off the group's self-titled record, out today) is no exception. It sees Michael K. Wiliams—better known as Omar from The Wire, among other roles—as a drug lord called "The Plant Hunter," for his ability to turn genetically modified plants into drugs. But we get to see another side of the violent man when his lover overdoses and begins to morph into a tree (hey, we told you it was weird).
MGMT just announced a massive tour in support of the new album; they'll play the Barclays Center on December 13.
