 I have just recently been turned on to this band "Caravan Palace" from France by a friend. The song is entitled "la caravane qui t'emmene". A fantastic upbeat Gypse-Swing-Jazz sound.

Ed has a great idea about jazz. Obviously the twenties was known as the Jazz Age for good reason.

Another idea is make it a Blues theme. Classic blues include modern.

For the next playlist, see what you think of the no-wave jazz band The Lounge Lizards' eponymous first album. The "Harlem Nocturne" cover is fascinating, as is the original tune "Conquest of Rar."

Also noteworthy are the electroswing outfit Der Dritte Raum, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, and Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire. Andrew Bird played on some of the Squirrel Nut Zippers stuff. By the way, The Wolfgang Parker interview was great, glad to see an Ohio boy representing us.

I didn't realize songs couple be rated. ;D I will go ahead and do that sometime.

As you're listening, be sure to rate the songs. This system lets us know which songs should be included in future playlists and which ones need to be dumped.

Ladies and gentlemen.  I am proud to announce the debut of the 2012 Winter Playlist!

Hi Mr. Amage,

I've always felt that Richard Cheese's style falls into the post-War "lounge" era of music rather than the upbeat tunes of the '30s and early '40s big bands.

Comment by Bryan D. Amage on January 7, 2012 at 1:54pm

Mr. Wilson,

I would like to thank you for taking the effort of serving us all these fine tunes.. i enjoy 'em daily and they have undeniably enriched my personal musical spectrum!.

Now, i happen to notice that there is an artist that has not yet appeared in your lists and in my opinon most certainly deserves to be; Richard Cheese and his band, Lounge Against the Machine.

They are a coverband who brutally transform contemporary rocksongs into Loungy jazz music, i'd say there is some dieselpunk-attitude in that. They have quite a repertoire and some of the lyrics ar explicit to say at least, but there are definately a few songs that would seemlessly slip into the list..

Some suggestions;

Let's get it started

Welcome to the jungle 

Girls, girls, girls

Rock the kasbah

Bust a move

Hoping to be of some service,

B.D. Amage

Somebody should add some Sinatra to the mix!

Comment by Ryan and Amanda Quinn on December 14, 2011 at 6:12pm

Tops.

Comment by Pablo J. Alvarez on December 12, 2011 at 6:46pm

Electro swing mmmmmmmmmmm lovely,

Comment by Komissar Hass on December 8, 2011 at 1:36am

I'd propose some tracks by Budzillus (Der Untergang, Stupid Song, Devil's Polka), and maybe some more extreme stuff from The CNK. And also dark-folk may be rather apropriate for the winter, I've mentioned some examples here: http://www.dieselpunks.org/group/music/forum/topics/how-restricted-...

I'm building the Winter playlist.

Can you recommend a good musician who I probably haven't heard of.  One hit wonders are okay, as long as the music is good.

Comment by mitchell swann on November 20, 2011 at 3:16am

Such cool stuff. Thanks so much for posting
