Enter to win the new album Mondo and a pair of tickets to see Electric Guest LIVE on their upcoming US tour.

On April 25, LA duo Electric Guest, consisting of Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton, will hit the road with their full band in support of their debut Danger Mouse-produced album Mondo on Downtown Records. Out April 24, Mondo includes infectious tracks “This Head I Hold” and “American Daydream”.
“American Daydream” Music Video:

Recently, Danger Mouse posted about the collaboration with the band via his website saying, “When he [Asa Taccone] played me the demo of the song “American Daydream” he did with Cornbread [Matthew Compton] (sounding pretty much as it sounds now) I was completely hooked, it was just so damn effortless. I played the demos over and over for more than a year and pushed him to do his own album”.
