When I was at the Soho house Friday night, my like-minded music industry friends were raving about this band Electric Guest. Essentially, they’re Danger Mouse’s new project and that’s all you have to tell me. The LA-based duo of Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton create Motown-inspired pop with an electronic and indie vibe. With their original video for This Head I Hold getting over 500,000 views, these dudes are already tapped to be one of the hottest acts of 2012.
Their debut album, Mondo, dropped last week via Downtown Records. Check it.
