Electric Guest

Recently performing the irresistibly catchy single “This Head I Hold” on the Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon, Electric Guest is riding on a noteworthy wave of momentum that is helping the band significantly flourish in the music industry. This Los Angeles based indie band garnered an enormous amount of success with its release of Mondo (Downtown Records/ Across the Universe) this past April. Having well-known musician Danger Mouse produce the entire album, Mondo peaked at #32 on the French Albums chart, #11 on the US Heatseekers Albums chart and #49 on the US Independent Albums chart. It is clear that the band enjoys a rather fervent fan base in the US and abroad. Constantly, touring in North America and in Europe, the band is well on its way to establish firm presence in the music industry.

The band consists of four members, Asa Tacconne (vocals, instrumental), Matthew “Cornbread” Compton (drummer), Todd Dahlhoff (bass), and Tory Dahlhoff (keyboards/guitar). Currently, on tour and trying to promote its latest EP Holiday, Electric Guest has also been identified, by MTV’s list of Artists to Watch in 2012, as a promising up-and-coming indie group that will not disappoint. Check out more information on the band with an upcoming interview on World Cafe. Listen to the band talk about its ascent in the industry and enjoy a couple of the band’s favorite tracks live.
