What is Mod? Mr. Suave's Mod, Mod World is one of the web's original modcasts celebrating mod music, and mod-influenced music from past eras including soul, ska, garage, sixties R&B power pop, punk, britpop, acid jazz, lounge, easy listening and more.
Today, I'm going to treat you to a brand new band out of Sweden. Sweden has consistenly produced some of the best mod friendly music over the years whether it be power pop, acid jazz, soul, or whatever. I don't know what they're putting in the water over there, but whatever it is they should spread it around.
The Modesty are a new up and coming mod band out of Stockholm. This track, "Park of Calm" has a definite Britpop feel to it, but with a heavy nod to the 70s mod revival.
