I paid for Pandora. Hopefully some of that gets to artists. #steampunkchat

RT Thanks for having us all! Fun chat tonight as always. 🙂 #steampunkchat

Kate Shaw
I do try to buy music I like that I’ve heard on Pandora, so there’s that I guess. #steampunkchat


block
The Artificer
Alrighty gang, thanks for coming out to play for our extra-long session tonight! #steampunkchat



block
Kate Shaw
I don’t know anything about him except the one album I bought on Bandcamp so I’m only going by what I hear. #steampunkchat



block
Airship Vindus
Also, I’d wonder how he classifies his music himself. #steampunkchat


block

block
Kate Shaw
Sorry, yes, ran out of room in my tweet. It doesn’t sound SP to me is what I meant while Caravan Palace does. #steampunkchat


block
The Artificer
They’re all Poop 4 paying t/actual artists. That’s why I buy on & stream when I need it #steampunkchat


block
Airship Vindus
Hold on. There’s a diff. between saying something isn’t SP & saying something isn’t SP music. #steampunkchat


block
Kate Shaw
Oh wow, how did it get to be 10pm so fast? I’ve now spent all my $ on new #steampunk music! #steampunkchat


block

block
Kate Shaw
I hear Spotify is the worst for not paying. Is Pandora bad too? 😦 I have a paid acct. #steampunkchat


block
The Artificer
Sweet Cheebus! We’ve burned through our hour and then some! Any closing thoughts? #steampunkchat


block
RubberDomme
Guys, I have to cut the chat short. Had a great time-have a good night all! #steampunkchat


block
The Artificer
my prob w/ & others is that they pay artists basically NOTHING. #steampunkchat


block
Kate Shaw
I’ll start a steampunk Celtic rock band as soon as I’m a decent drummer, in about 10 years. 🙂 #steampunkchat


block
Big Band Tweets
RT : #steampunk bands tend to focus on rock/punk/folk while #electroswing is more big band+electronic #steampunkchat


block
Kate Shaw
Last #steampunkchat someone recced Vourteque, love but don’t consider SP, but Caravan Palace I do.


block
Airship Vindus
Dunno about steampunk bands specifically. Fans seem to be content w/ straight Celtic rock. #steampunkchat


block
CircleCity Aerodrome
I’ve heard but I was trying to make a Steampunk station on Pandora. Not so easy to do. #steampunkchat


block
RubberDomme
I admit, I dig parov stelar because of that vintage-remix sound. #steampunkchat


block
The Artificer
no, but-> is on Sndcld & Bndcmp. I have a list of his hrd2fnd stuff https://t.co/aUci2B9CMM #steampunkchat


block
Kate Shaw
Any steampunk bands that crossover into Celtic rock? Because I would really like that. #steampunkchat


block

block
Kate Shaw
I think there’s a lot of crossover. Depends on what they sample and so forth, I guess. #steampunkchat


block
The Artificer
agreed. Electroswing is more vintage-remixed. SP needs to “go beyond” historical a bit. #steampunkchat


block
Airship Vindus
#steampunk bands tend to focus on rock/punk/folk while #electroswing is more big band+electronic #steampunkchat


block
Airship Vindus
I feel like #steampunk bands are a little different from #electroswing bands. #steampunkchat

The Artificer
There’s also and the amazing vid for “Eye of the Storm” by Lovett https://t.co/o9IRqEUI2Z #Steampunkchat

RubberDomme
It’s pretty amazing how much variety steampunk music has. Everything from cabaret to middle eastern influences. #steampunkchat


block
Airship Vindus
Alternatively, anything that fuses new & old styles. MT : What makes for a ” #Steampunk ” band or performer? #steampunkchat


block
Airship Vindus
Anything that gives you that Old World feeling. MT : What makes for a ” #Steampunk ” band or performer? #steampunkchat

It’s hard to describe but its metal and…well..violins. Very heavy but melodic. #steampunkchat

Kate Shaw
I saw him last year (I think I’ve managed to mention that practically every #steampunkchat) and he’s amazing!


block
Kate Shaw
Ooh, I’m listening to them now for the first time and really like them! #steampunkchat

CircleCity Aerodrome
They play everywhere. They’re friends with our President and sometimes ask us to line up a show for them. #steampunkchat



block
The Artificer
I ❤ ! They’ve played at t/last 2 #teslacon They’re so awesome, & positively delightful PPL #steampunkchat


block
CircleCity Aerodrome
I imagine so. The Game of Thrones theme is distinctive with room to improvise. #steampunkchat


block


block
Kate Shaw
One thing I appreciate about steampunk is how it encompasses so many musical styles without anyone batting an eye. #steampunkchat



block
RubberDomme
Speaking of Abney Park, I recently discovered a song that Nathan Johnstone played violins on. It’s a cover of Game of Thrones #steampunkchat


block
CircleCity Aerodrome
We’ve had Frenchy and the Punk play in Indianapolis. I haven’t been lucky enough to see them. #steampunkchat


block
Kate Shaw
For me it’s definitely Abney Park. They’re my favorite band right now. #steampunkchat


block
The Artificer
RT Much like steampunk style of any kind (clothes, etc) is hard to define but easy to recognize. #steampunkchat

The Artificer
What band/performer is your favorite #Steampunk group/musician? #steampunkchat



block
The Artificer
+1! The best defin. I’ve ever seen is “#Steampunk music is music that speaks to Steampunks”. No more, no less. #steampunkchat


block
The Artificer
RT : I’ve been asking myself that all evening to prepare for #steampunkchat but haven’t come up with anything concrete.

Let’s dive right in- What makes for a ” #Steampunk ” band or performer- is there a key element needed? #steampunkchat


block
Kate Shaw
Oh no! I hope next weekend is better for bike-riding, at least. #steampunkchat

The Artificer

mostly cut-up from several days of metal lathing, but otherwise splendid. #steampunkchat

It’s a lovely evening here, the rain has moved off and tomorrow should be sunny and fairly warm for a change! #steampunkchat
