Do you listen to Steampunk music?
« on: April 22, 2016, 08:57:20 PM »

Just like the title says. And if you do, what do you listen to? (Please share.)

If you're not sure what this steampunk music is, try Steam Powered Giraffe - Brass Goggles.

A couple of years ago I stumbled upon these ...individuals. Quite fun actually.  :D

Quote from: Wikipedia
Steampunk music is very broadly defined. Abney Park’s lead singer, Robert Brown defined it as, "mixing Victorian elements and modern elements." There is a broad range of musical influences that make up the Steampunk sound, from industrial dance and world music[51] to folk rock, Punk cabaret to straightforward punk,[85] Carnatic[86] to industrial, hip-hop to opera (and even industrial hip-hop opera),[87][88] darkwave to progressive rock, barbershop to big band.

[89] Joshua Pfeiffer (of Vernian Process) is quoted as saying, "As for Paul Roland, if anyone deserves credit for spearheading Steampunk music, it is him. He was one of the inspirations I had in starting my project. He was writing songs about the first attempt at manned flight, and an Edwardian airship raid in the mid-80’s long before almost anyone else…".[90] Thomas Dolby is also considered one of the early pioneers of retro-futurist (i.e., steampunk and dieselpunk) music.[89][91] Amanda Palmer was once quoted as saying, "Thomas Dolby is to Steampunk what Iggy Pop was to Punk!"[92]

Well, that was different. It wasn't bad if I stopped examining the makeup.

Yeah the example is a cosplaying band. Sorta cosplaying. But the music is not bad and quite catchy.
