Danger Mouse superfans still holding their breath for a third Gnarls Barkley album — allegedly one's coming out later this year — would do well to exhale and breathe in the similarly skilled sounds of neo-soul duo Electric Guest. The group's Danger Mouse-produced debut, Mondo, is a sublimely strange mélange of Outkast-copping R&B (handclap-happy first single "This Head I Hold") and stoned acoustic reveries boasting surprisingly lithe bottom ends ("American Daydream"). Originally conceived as a studio-only project, the band has since morphed into a live entity featuring two additional players and strikes an impressive balance between live instrumentation and skillful sampling in concert.
