MGMT closed Murphy’s Little Big Weekend last night, Sunday, October 20. They released their self-titled third album earlier this year, to a smattering of applause but little more. So there was a curious crowd in the Savoy for the group, though they still played the tracks that made their reputation. Support on the night came from O Emperor and New York’s Guards. The former also released an album this year but, in contrast to the headliners, it was released to critical acclaim, winning them a completely new audience. Rightfully so, too.
