Electric Guest is a Los Angeles-based band formed in 2005. The group comprises Asa Taccone and Matthew "Cornbread" Compton. On April 24, 2012, the band released their debut album, Mondo. Electric Guest has received a great number of accolades in their young career. They garnered attention in late 2011 and early 2012, earning them a month's long residency at the Echo in Silverlake, California. They performed their single “This Head I Hold” on an April 2012 taping of the Late Show with David Letterman and have made major international festival appearances. Their album Mondo hit the Billboard charts upon its release, reaching No. 11 on the Heatseekers Albums chart and No. 49 on the Independent Albums chart. Their lead single, "This Head I Hold", reached No. 30 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. Brian Burton (a.k.a. Danger Mouse) produced Electric Guest's debut album Mondo after a year of exchanging advice and music with Asa Taccone, who happened to be a friends' younger brother. Taccone then moved to Los Angeles by taking the room Burton was moving out of. Their relationship continued, and ultimately blossomed into their collaboration on Mondo.
