Re: 'Diesel' Music?

Oh, I am a huge Caravan Palace fan, as well as a general patron of electro swing. In fact, I just recently learned about a place in Toronto that does monthly electo swing nights and am looking forward to going to the one they are holding in August!

Sounds like a lot of fun!

I hold the little girl's hand
I wrestle the wildfire
I share the pain
Because if not I, who? If not now, when?

Re: 'Diesel' Music?

I've been listening to the Puppini Sisters lately. Very nice chorus girl/'40s popular songstress feel. Very much like the Andrews Sisters.

Hello Everybody...

I was looking for music for dieselpunk and I´ve found some good stuff I think.

Caravan Palace is just one I don´t know if you already know this bands but anyway:

The Fascinating Rhythms with a cover from Peggy Lee that sounds so good to me:

You also can watch this great video from Chinese Man "I´ve got the tune"

Or maybe this "Side B" from Der Dritte Raum "Swing bop"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvmOPUTv … p;index=19

Oh I almost forgot it of course Big Bad Voodoo Daddy with this cover from "Minnie the moocher"

What do you think?

Re: 'Diesel' Music?

Mmm...this isn't music so much as it is entertaining audio, but it would be kind of silly to post it elsewhere.

Anyway, yesterday on my blog I was reminded of some episodes of The Adventures of Philip Marlowe I was listening to not too long ago.  I don't know if there's been a post linking to the radio episodes, so I figured I'd add something here:

Good old-fashioned storytelling.  As I said, not music, per se, though it's certainly music to my ears.  Hope you enjoy (if you haven't already before)!
