Steampunk Music by Other People

Thanks to Brass Goggles and the Clock Workers Guild Journal, I have discovered two lovely Steampunk musical ensembles:

Sunday Driver  ‘make music with a harp, a sitar, some guitars, some clarinets, tablas and whatever we can get our grubby mitts on.’

Their latest album ‘In the City of Dreadful Night’ is a pure delight. Rats is probably my favourite track, but possible not, as the two tracks after it are also fantastic. As is every other track that I’ve listened to.

RPM Orchestra is less accesible – electroacoustic found recordings and soundscapes rather than the vocal-centric Sunday Driver. That doesn’t make it any less worthwhile though.
