The Mentalists Use iPhone Apps to Cover MGMT’s “Kids,” Prove Being MGMT Is Easy


Just hope they paid the licensing fee

All-girl British foursome the Mentalists figured out how to cover MGMT’s “Kids” using only iPod/iTouch applications, so they put on crazy eye make-up and giant necklaces, and recorded a live version for YouTube. The resultant video succeeds not in interpretive transcendence, but in proving that all it takes to be MGMT are copies of Ocarina, Retro Synth, miniSynth, DigiDrummer Lite and some stupid outfits. (That and we are only months away from an all iPhone-app cover-song night at Public Assembly.) Perhaps the Mentalists are available to play ATP vs the Fans? [TechCrunch via Jeff Carvalho]
