“Lucifer Sam” (Pink Floyd Cover) (Live On Fallon) (Video)

    Foo Fighters raised the bar on Jimmy Fallon’s Pink Floyd week on Tuesday night by performing a song with Roger Waters, which left MGMT with some stiff competition to follow on last night’s show. The band reached back to the Syd Barrett era with this version of “Lucifer Sam,” which is faithful to the original, just with a few layers of analog keyboard dumped on top. It might not be an exact channelling of Syd’s spirit, but this fits perfectly with MGMT’s shift toward guitar-based psychedelia on Congratulations.
