COUNTDOWN: 9 Days to Sasquatch-Electric Guest

May 16. 2012 | By Christine Cook

Although it may seem that LA band Electric Guest has arrived on the scene rather quickly, members Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton have been around for quite a while. Tacconne was one of the masterminds behind The Lonely Islands’ “Dick in a Box.” Some of the same dry, sarcastic humor can be seen below in the band’s video for “American Daydream.”

Their debut album Mondo dropped just a few weeks ago and has been met with mixed reviews by critics. Yet despite many claims that the band is playing off the successful qualities of others, such as Passion Pit and Foster The People, their mixture between ’60s throwback sounds and electronic hooks make for catchy clap-your-hands, tap-your-feet music that will be perfect for a show on a sunny outdoor stage.

They’ll be playing Saturday at 2pm on the Bigfoot Stage.
