MGMT recording new album near Buffalo

American psychedelic rock band MGMT is recording a brand new album in a cabin just on the outskirts of Buffalo.
Rolling Stone reported in a recent article that the musical duo, comprising Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, has spent the good part of 2012 in a woodsy cabin filled with keyboards, drum machines and guitars.
“We’ll get involved in what we’re doing,” Goldwasser told Rolling Stone, “and the next thing we know, we’ve been improvising for five hours.”
The new album is going to be weird. Weirder than previous albums. The recording process has been so strange that co-producer Dave Fridmann said, ” ... we did a cover just to say, ‘Let’s get back to planet Earth for a second.’”
The specific location of the Buffalo-area studio isn’t mentioned in the Rolling Stone article, but Tarbox Road Studios retweeted MGMT’s tweet containing this image of the studio’s interior:
In the studio…there’s Another type of Kat. Whatcha think about that? twitter.com/whoisMGMT/stat…— MGMT (@whoisMGMT) January 13, 2013
Tarbox Road Studios is located in Cassadaga, near Fredonia, and is owned by Fridmann, MGMT’s co-producer on the album.
