Myspace surprise: The Knast

Wading through the tons of gambling, porn and international heavy metal bands that request to be myspace friends with the blog can be somewhat tiring. But, occasionally something breaks through that is genuinely good, and on a really good day that group is also from Seattle.

Well, today is a really good day. I received a friend request from The Knast which seems to be a relatively new group (their myspace page was just created back in October). I can't say I know a thing about them (no bio on the site). But, I'm thrilled they found me.

They're a little bit garage, and little bit 60s pop, and a little bit mod/R&B (in the same way that The Small Change is). The one tune they have on their page, "sittin' in my tree," is one toe-tappin', head-bobbin' number that I've listened to three times straight. Head over and take a listen.
