ELECTRIC GUEST (a.k.a. Asa Taccone & Matthew Compton)

   

Despite being virtually unknown, they are one of the most promising unsigned bands in the world, aided by the fact that they're managed byMonotone Inc. (Jack White, Vampire Weekend, The Shins, Cold War Kids) and produced by Brian Burton (AKA Danger Mouse).

Danger Mouse (Gorillaz, Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells, The Black Keys, U2) is at that point in his career where he can do no wrong. At this precious moment, he is the arbiter of what is hip, redefining pop and elevating what might be otherwise esoteric concepts into radio-ready joyrides.

Brian came to the project thanks to his longstanding friendship with Jorma Taccone, Asa's brother, who is famous for his contributions to The Lonely Island (with Andy Samberg) and their renegade musical sketches on Saturday Night Live (ie. “Dick in a Box"!).

I first played Electric Guest on air at KCRW on May 28 and it was one of those radio debuts that reminded me of how lucky I am to have a platform to share music I love. And standing in the crowd this past Monday, watching the band on stage – and watching Brian watch the band onstage – inspired still another moment of joy and deep gratitude.

 

 

 

 

 

Chris Douridas, KCRW, le 13 Juillet 2011

"Having taken NYC by storm over the course of multiple appearances at last month's CMJ Music Marathon, Los Angeles' own Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton--collectively known as Electric Guest--have finally made available two tracks from the duo's forthcoming first album: KCRW Song of the Day "Troubleman" and "American Daydream" (currently being previewed at RCRDLBL.com) are both on sale now via iTunes"
