Musical notes:

“Electric Feel” is by MGMT, an American psychedelic-rock-electronic band based in Brooklyn, New York.  The band is made up two members, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden, who met while attending Wesleyan University.  The song is from their debut album, Oracular Spectacular.

The Magnetic Fields is an indie pop band founded and led by Stephin Merrit.  His bandmate and friend, Claudia Gonson, helped to start the band in 1989.  Their songs are known for their catchiness, but also off-beat humor, bitterness, and irony.

Here’s one of my favorites, “Absolutely Cuckoo,” as a soundtrack for a toy monster and robot love story:
