With one look at their myspace page you'll learn that the Saturday Knights are from Denzel, Washington and that their inspirational quote reads "let's just be friends...at first". It's refreshing to hear catchy alternative hip-hop that doesn't take itself too seriously. The minds behind this madness are two lyricists, Tilson and Barfly, as well as DJ Suspense who captures a lot of their vintage rock rhythms. Their debut full length, Mingle, which hit stores last week, also features a helping hand from the Dap Kings, the funk behind Sharon Jones and Amy Winehouse as well as the ghosts of Seattle grunge past, Kim Thayil (Soundgarden) and Nirvana producer Jack Endino, who contributed drums for our featured "45".
