The frantic period when mega-festival Splendour in the Grass spreads throughout Australia with an abundance of sideshows comes to an end for 2012. Just before things were to wrap up, the fun-loving L.A-based Electric Guest brought the party to Oxford Art Factory and completely nailed their one-hour set.
About to hit Australia for the first time later this month for Splendour in the Grass and a couple of sideshows, we catch up with Asa from acclaimed LA duo Electric Guest to talk about their album Mondo, touring the world, working with Danger Mouse and much more...
In this issue: Sigur Ròs Announce Two Harvest Festival Sideshows, Ben Harper Announces Third and Final Sydney Show, Hilltop Hoods Add North Queensland Dates to 'Speaking In Tongues' Tour, The Amity Affliction Add Extra Tour Date To 'The Chasing Ghosts Tour' and many more!
With the 2012 Splendour in the Grass festival boasting some sweet international and local talent once again, the usual round of sideshows have been announced today. If you missed out on tickets to the festival itself, you can score yourself some tickets to any of the following shows. Sales commence from 9am, May 4.

WEDNESDAY JULY 25 – THE HI-FI, MELBOURNE
Hitting Australia for Splendour in the Grass in July, we caught up with Electric Guest while they were in Texas to chat about the impending Australian tour, their experiences in Texas, what we can expect from their debut record (Mondo - Released in Australia 24th April and produced by the one and only Dangermouse), music videos, what it meant to sign to Dew Process and much much more!!
The day got rolling with a few interviews and a pop into the Dorito's Stage, which was essentially a massive faux vending machine that was turned into a live stage, in celebration of their new brand of chips. Such was just one of the many branded events on site, but most definitely was the most ambitious... dare I say impressive? I'm not sure who I saw, but they're pictured below.
This is the brand new music video from Dew Process signees Electric Guest, an up-and-coming duo out of LA. The clip was directed by Jorma Ticcone of The Lonely Island and Saturday Night Live... oh and he's also lead singer Asa's brother. So you know you're in for a good time.
