Myspace Mondays

It is with great pleasure that I introduce a new feature to "Captain Melody's Music Reviews." While sailing the seas of myspace music the Captain comes across great music from up and coming bands. Each Monday I will begin featuring these bands to help get the word out on great music. These bands will not be major-label acts but those still in the grind of making it in the music business.

This week's band is "The Cheat" from Los Angeles, California. Labled as indie alternative rock their music is rough with unique qualities of blues guitar riffs that really zing. The lead singer has a really cool and calm voice that fits well with the music - almost like Coldplay in a bad mood. Forgive the pun, but The Cheat does not leave you feeling cheated.

They feature 5 songs off of their EP Tombstone. Check them out!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment, and especially for leaving a link back here. I've book marked your blog and will visit again (also found some interesting blogs in your list). I don't do a whole lot with newer music, am pretty much stuck in the 60s, but I do like to check out what's out there, so I'm not totally uncool!

I like the idea of introducing something truly underground here. Any chance that The Cheat get their name from the Homestar Runner character of the same name?

If they did, then that would be reason enough to be a fan.
