SONG OF THE DAY: MGMT - "Metanoia"

Metanoia: "in the psychological theory of Carl Jung denotes a process of reforming the psyche as a form of self healing, a proposed explanation for the phenomenon of psychotic breakdown." 
 - Wikipedia 

This fourteen minute ballad was released by the band as a single in 2008.  What is most strange is that it is much more similar to their later work on Congratulations (Siberian Breaks) than it is to their 2007 album, Oracular Spectacular.  Like the previously mentioned "Siberian Breaks", this track changes almost more times than you can count.  It is an ever-evolving gem that combines the happy melodies which MGMT is famous for with their perpetually trippy lyrics.  Additionally, you won't hear teenage girls listening to this, which is a plus.
