Modern cabaret music

When I first heard of the Dresden Dolls I figured they were alone in their niche. How many people could be working with Weimar cabaret tropes in modern pop and postpunk? Turns out, quite a few. I’ve been listening to a lot of this over the past few months; thanks to my young friend Vaughn in particular for introducing me to Steam Powered Giraffe. As it’s such a visual medium I’m including a YouTube playlist below.

So I guess this is a wedding band

Just looks like a regular family party in Thailand. Grandma’s 75th? Maybe a village festival? Oh, but one where the band plays incredible psychedelic rock that could have graced a main stage at Woodstock. They have a Facebook page here, but no album yet. Truly a treat for the ears.
