Devil Doll is a new love of mine. She sounds like she belongs in a slinky dress, sprawled on top of a piano in a smokey bar.
WOW, I been doing the retro swing thing for over a decade, but I just saw this post. I agree with everything that has been posted. I would add a few though:
Manhattan Transfer - Swing and Spirit of St. Louis
Anything by John Pizzarelli
Anything by Michael Buble'
And Larry turned me onto Wolfgang Parker and Ego Wrappin'! Both solid bands.
I am going to be producing a Special Summer Song Mix of cool Dieselpunk style tunes as an Episode of the Diesel Powered Podcast in the next few weeks!
John Barrowman of Torchwood and Doctor Who, singing "Anything Goes" by Cole Porter. He has a whole CD of Cole Porter songs called John Barrowman Swings Cole Porter.
For some reason a few Dubstep tracks give me that Dieselpunk feel, it's rather strange. Maybe it's because I associate the Dieselpunk aestethic with enormous factories and a highly industrialised society, but coupled with the music of e.g. Wolfgang Parker and Devil Doll.
Sorry for the double post, but here's an example of what I mean.
