MGMT's self-produced 2005 EP "Time to Pretend" has become a college-radio staple. The CD found its way into the hands of legendary Columbia producer Steve Lilywhite, who liked what he heard. The deal was done last week.
MGMT, which consists of VanWyngarden and Beno Goldwasser, is slated to release its first Columbia CD next summer.
