From: Los Angeles, California
Pros: Danger Mouse on production, industry connections, and instantly gratifying music.
Cons: Recreating their sound might be tough without Danger Mouse.
Electric Guest already has more than just a foot in the door. Lead singer Asa Taccone is the brother to Jorma, a founding member of The Lonely Island, and the Los Angeles duo has Danger Mouse on production for their debut album Mondo. But before you think these guys are just getting by on their connections, take a listen to the music. The melodies are timeless, but Danger Mouse gives them that subtle, magical touch, giving the band an updated twist that keeps their universally appealing sound interesting.
