Caravan Palace is technically dieselpunk, not steampunk, but I love both so I’ll be posting  both of them on here. This is their awesome video for a song from their new album.

For those of you less familiar with steampunk music or the dieselpunk genre, I’ll give a brief explanation. If people are more interested in this, I’d be happy to go into more detail. This group would technically be categorized as techno swing, but I like to call it steampunk because it embodies the idea of mixing modern music with that of a past era, in this case closer to the 20-40 swing era instead of the Victorian Era. The fact that it is from the 20s-40s age of “diesel” instead of “steam” is what makes this band technically dieselpunk instead of steampunk.
