What is Dieselpunk?

Dieselpunks logoDieselpunk is an art style that blends the spirit of the 1920s - 1950s with contemporary technology and attitude.

We are inspired by roaring movement and revolution: jazz, modern art, world wars, streamlined technology, pulp adventure, and film noir. Our goal is to combine the zeitgeist of the past with today's ideas in order to build a better tomorrow.

Especially Angel Eyes.It wasn't a big hit back then, but then, it is radically different from the music he was known for before he went solo.The album can be downloaded for free at Last.fm, quite legally: …See More

True Detective

Forgive me all those teeth on the floor - it must have fallen out when my jaw hit the floor after watching just another episode of True Detective. But what's that mighty force that left me awestruck and astonished? Oh, just a neo-noir, southern gothic story with tangible lovecraftian influences.And. It's. Great.While not certainly dieselpunk, it's 100% noir and 100% fitting under tags we all seek for. There's a mystery, there's tough detectives, there's seductive gals, there's doggone King in…See More
