New Music: The Mgmt

As on-campus performance art provocateurs, Andrew and Ben began staging a series of “these obnoxious, noisy live electronic shows — we never planned on having it be a recorded project — where we would write these weird techno loops and arrangements that we could play with live. Most of it was running live off the computer and we had a turntable plugged into some guitar pedals, a radio, and a tape player. It was all electronically generated at that point. We would write a new song for each show and our shows would be 15 minutes long.”

In contrast to the group’s early live shows, which were mainly electronically generated, Oracular Spectacular is filled with “more traditional rock instruments: electric guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, synthesizers all played live.”
