MGMT recording new album near Buffalo

blog by S.J. Velasquez  • 

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:

Tarbox Road Studios is located in Cassadaga, near Fredonia, and is owned by Fridmann, MGMT’s co-producer on the album.

Buffalo.com has attempted to contact MGMT and a band representative, but calls/tweets/emails have not yet been returned.

    There should be a location pinned to the tweet, in it’s coding I belive. It might have GPS data. That’s how John McAfee was located according to this article:


    Unless the pic is Tarbox Studio? Also, I have no idea how to find that information, just that it exists.
