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.
