First things first: What exactly is an “Electric Guest?” A cyborg visitor? An online travel and lodging guide? A 1950s euphemism for sex toy? Given the retro-future vibe that runs throughout Electric Guest’s debut album, Mondo, any of those origins would make sense…

Electric Guest vocalist, writer and co-founder Asa Taccone explains the true life genesis of the band’s name: “When I got kicked out of high school in Berkeley, I started hanging out at a donut shop. An older woman who worked there was a weirdo like me, into a lot of new age-y, metaphysical shit and before I left she told me to always remember that I was ‘an electric guest of the universe.’ For some reason it stuck with me.” Like the titular origin, the band and its music is a collection of people and memories Asa has picked up along the way during his long, circuitous journey towards completion of Mondo. This nomadic quality permeates every one of their songs, with their symphonic structures and unpredictable (yet never jarring) twists and turns—not to mention the soulful vocals that guide the listener through dreamy sonic odysseys like the near-9-minute first single “Troubleman.”
