MGMT has gone from the little Brooklyn band that could into the international ambassadors of hipster culturey'know, the most-agreed upon definition of "hipster," the Wayfarers and neon shirts and Casio shimmy dance and whatnot. Basically, these guys are the reason that kids in Iowa are gonna be dressing like your friends did in 2006.
