Soundtrack of My Life – This Head I Hold

Soundtrack of my LifeThis is one of a regular series of articles highlighting some of the music that has played a part in my life.

You’ll find a range of songs from old to new. You’ll probably find music that has been part of the soundtrack of your life too.

You can also check out some of the other songs that make up the soundtrack of my life.

This Head I Hold – Electric Guest

Electric Guest has only released one album so far, 2012’s Mondo, but there is a second on the way. They finished recording in February so it’s just a matter of time until we hear some new music from them.

I have a vast music collection with many hundreds of albums. Mondo by Electric Guest is certainly up there among my favourites.

Electric Guest is a Los Angeles-based band formed in 2011. The group comprises Asa Taccone and Matthew “Cornbread” Compton. Brothers Todd and Tory Dahlhoff play bass and keyboards/guitar, respectively, in the touring version of the band. – Wiki

I’m a big fan of their sound and I’m a strong believer that friends don’t let friends go through life without introducing them to Electric Guest’s music.

Here’s the ‘out there’ video for This Head I Hold, a great single from Mondo. You may have heard it behind a TV commercial or two but listen all the way through and enjoy it as the great song it is.

I’d encourage you to get involved too. Let me know about some of the songs that are etched in your mind. What are the tunes that bring back a flood of memories every time their opening notes start cranking out on your stereo? Are there songs you love for their music and others that speak deeply through their lyrics?
