Editors’ Notes

A stuttered melodica contrasts Asa Taccone’s flowing, androgynous voice in the electro-indie ballad “Holes,” the Air-esque song that opens Electric Guest’s 2012 debut album, Mondo. But it’s not until the following retro-soul number, “This Head I Hold,” that the album’s tone is set. Produced by Danger Mouse, this tune is creamy with vintage Motown tones, grooving rhythms, analog keyboards, and Taccone’s effortlessly cool falsetto singing. “Awake” similarly struts with a soulful bass lead that recalls the relaxed drive of the late, great Donald “Duck” Dunn. Hardly one-trick ponies, Taccone and Matthew Compton dial down the rhythms in “Amber,” a lazy and hazy jam where sun-flared keyboard notes and electro flourishes keepMondo from succumbing to a full-blown rehash. Even when infusing a late-'70s yacht-rock cool into the nearly nine-minute-long “Troubleman,” Electric Guest exercises restraint, keeping things cool and balanced. The song’s mood recalls boat shoes and short-shorts, and the production is effervescent with fresh sounds and arrangements. The L.A. duo works in acoustic guitars and wooden percussion in the beach-friendly closer, “Control.”

Amazing!

They are so chill. Absolutely perfect driving jams.
