Hey! So I'm so curious about Ben!!! No one ever seems to care about what he's doing off stage, If he's doing anything. It's not that I want to be all up in his business I am just curious about what kind of person he is?

Ben is absolutely everything you want him to be.  He’s warm and kind and funny and sweet.  He’s very much as he appears in videos.  He reminds me of a puppy-eager to please :)

Warpaint places its songs at that complicated intersection: where a grid of repetition meets the amorphous crosscurrents of emotion and desire.

What I Learned At A Hipster Sex Party With The Singer Of MGMT

When we found out that this was how people were discovering our music, we didn’t have a clue how it worked - but it did.

We don’t have a style. It’s rock, synth, indie, pop. Whatever it may be, the important thing is that it is its own beast.

We grow as musicians and as people, so naturally - if you’re writing from a place of honesty - the music will grow with you and you can’t stay the same.

I’ve got some punk influences - the fringe of punk, really. Not Ramones punk. I also like electro like Aphex Twin.

There’s no distinction between genres when I listen to music, because what sounds good to me sounds good to me.

I draw from what I know, and I’m sure it’s the same for the rest of the band. We’ve got no interest in honing in on any specific style.

It’s not like we’re trying to be obscure or anything. I guess MGMT just wants to challenge what’s acceptable in music.

Just a glimpse of the party.  I didn’t take many pics and some were just personal, so I’m not posting.  All photos by lala
