Boing Boing Scoops Music Mags on New MGMT Cover Art

Chalk one up for the geeks: while countless music magazines out there would have done anything to get their grubby paws on the cover art for electro-indie band MGMT’s upcoming album, Congratulations, they were beaten to the punch — by geeky curiosity blog Boing Boing.

The cover was painted by Trinidad and Tobago-born artist and cartoonist Anthony Ausgang, who told Boing Boing that the band was a pleasure to work with: “A lot of people who commission a painting only know what they don’t want; fortunately MGMT knew what they wanted and let me do it my way.”
