The Crossroads of the Aether
I've heard a lot of Steampunk tunes over time but it all seems to be sort of sad, gloomy, or ironic. Is that because it refers to a time period that is actually past, gone and dead?
I think there's plenty of room for upbeat, optimistic music in Steampunk. It's about a time when anything was possible and even though mistakes were made, lots of new things were happening. So where's the happy music?
what bands have you checked out and what albums if you dont mind my inquireing maybe I can help suggest somthing if I knew what you were listining to.
Most SP music sounds upbeat and energetic to me:
I was forgetting Professor Elemental, and I was completely unaware of Steampunk Funk Bizarre! I love funk! Abney Park is good but even that one is rather minor key. I'm not saying it's all bad, most of it is very good, just rather regretful-sounding and nostalgic. Thanks for the input!
Heres another song you might enjoy its sort of adventureous and up beat although it reminds me of a steam punk larp for some reason. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAjJXil3UOE
Nice, reminds me of Marty Robbins as well as Cows With Guns! See, I knew there had to be more out there.
My favorite and how could anyone miss these guys? ENSMB!
And of course The Boston Sprockettes are ALWAYS cheerful (but we do mostly covers so....)
Don't click on this - you can't end it. Closing the tab, even choosing a different youtube video this keeps on going!
I'm now rebooting my computer in the hopes it goes away.
The question is, why would you want Caravan Palace to go away?
The Cog is Dead
Future by Alex the Kid
The Men That Will Not be Blamed For Nothing. Yes, it is heavy metal, but it is also comedy. Try the song "moon."
Santa Clause is Coming to Town by Justin Bieber (JK!)

Like the podcast!
The Men That Will Not etc., I sampled several tunes on YouTube. That's not heavy metal That's honest-to-goodness Steam PUNK. Must say I quite liked it.
Glad you like the show!
