Los Angeles based Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton make up the electrifying Electric Guest, whose debut album Mondo was just unleashed last week. Filled with zesty grooves sprinkled with soulful harmonies, this sprightly album won’t outwear its welcome.
If there’s something about Mondo that feels familiar, it may be due to their secret weapon: Danger Mouse added his magical touch, producing the album.
The Guardian’s take on Mondo?
“There’s a similar sense with Mondo of a hipster’s take on cheese, of Guilty Pleasures – Motown and MOR, smooth-fi and 70s/80s daytime radio funk-lite – given a cred makeover.”
That’s music I can settle into.
