Disco’s been back so long that it’s hard to remember that it was ever demolished, but it’s still a surprise to hear it revived so thoroughly these days. Case in point are the smooth sounds of Electric Guest, who are both modern and classically disco on third full-length, Kin.
Electric Guest’s own sounds hews more towards the smooth R&B end of the disco ball spectrum, rather than flashy dance, though, yes, done electric, such as on opener “Dollar” and the grooves of “24-7”. But singer Asa Taccone also brings in the very of-the-now in some of his lyrics, like his back-to-back takedowns of cash-obsessed in “I Got the Money”, and then of those we now call “Basic”.
Admittedly, many of the other tracks on Kin aren’t as memorable as those, especially these days, when electro-R&B/disco is everywhere. But Electric Guest have earned their welcome.
