Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys have even started referring to themselves as steampunk!

I would very much like to recommend Dima Koldun, from Belarus.

Dima Koldun: Work Your Magic (Eurovision 2007 - Belarus)DQ


The costumes in this video are so steampunk it gives me chills.

Also, Boy's "Joey" which is an animated fable that looks like an old storybook.  Very steampunk in feel.

BOY: "Joey"DQ


In terms of pure sound, "Different Trains" by Steve Reich is a favorite of mine.  Classical meets elecronica and train whistles.

Steam Powered Giraffe needs to be added to this list.

And Elemental. Of course.

As a musician and an artists myself i tend to air on the side of caution when it comes to having my entire body of work categorized by narrow minded view points of what should be based on people that want to classify me for a simple digestable package.  Instead I embrace the philosophy that I create music. Some songs may be appropriately categorized and appreciated by people that prefer more industrial beats, while others may prefer my more pop oriented which are often more uplifting, other songs may be disturbing, and other songs may be uplifting and positive. Some songs may incorporate influences from ancient African or American Indian tribal beats, other songs may travel through middle-eastern progressions and rhythms, there are countless other reasons and examples why my music may vary and just because I love copper, clockworks, gears, vest, and top hats does not mean my music needs to be confined in order to be accepted by other people that like these things..   I would hate to be an artist forced into such a narrow categorical reference... to have all my music - every single song I write to be punk or thrash or metal or industrial or hip hop is death.  Instead I encourage the world to encourage and support an open philosophy to fuse sound, the cross mutate, and blend and morph and to be able to fold space and time upon itself to introduce multiple genres into something new that does canto be defined by what is already in place for you to pull from the freezer.  Baroque influences with classic rock tones and heavy electronica beats and then slam the listener into a wall of organic soundscapes only to eventually lead them through techno driven dub step and gothic love songs of yesteryear....  this I think is why I've had a hard time calling myself anything based on all the current narrow minded genres and I why I coined the phrase.

Dark World Jazz and Dark World Electronic.  Is it all steampunk. No probably not... but is some of it... who perhaps... if you like steampunk and you like my music and it makes you feel more steampunk when you are listening to it then who knows perhaps that makes some of it steampunk.  Does my music suddenly become steampunk because I put on an aviator hat... since time travel is already a part of the steampunk timeline and pre existing folklore there is no reason you can't continue to listen to your punk music while shooting ray guns with your friends. 

I personally can't see myself writing lyrics about raiding pirate ships but yet I'm working with a new crew called the Air Ship Isabella and just started working on an instrumental theme song for them.  As a musician I'm an emotional soul and as such my music reflects both my personal life and the world around me... as I meet new people and have new experiences I find new inspiration but still I will often resort to my natural philosophy my own inner muse.

If you would like to listen to my music give me a shout if you any of it. If you are a steamer and like my music shout out to me on myspace and let me know.  I currently have over 80 songs but much of it is not recorded... we incorporate both live and electronic elements... and travel through time and space on a spiritual level to transcend genres and to simply deliver music.  If you must classify it than by all means let me know what you think.

I'm not bound to ever fully confine myself to narrow minded viewpoints of genre ideals of steam music would sound like.  The beauty of the culture to me is that the door is wide open and I think it should remain wide open.  But hey what do I know. I apparently can only see 16,000,000 different shades of color.

I dig this stuff. I only had a chance to listen to the first track (getting late here and need my rest), but I like this track. It definitely feels like a Darkwave/World/Industrial style piece.

I also quite enjoyed that Coppelius video, although it probably would have made more sense if I spoke German.

Wow! So much fantastic stuff, though the list could potentially be endless! In the spirit of musical adventure I've been discovering all sorts of weird, wonderful and often, frankly baffling stuff recently, all of which is worth sharing with similarly skewed souls- also try;
The Blackcat Revival
Sophe Lux
Nicki Jaine
Jaggery
Rosin Coven
The Rohan Theatre Band
Vera Baxter
Alcartoona
DeatHat
The Dead Brothers
Meret Becker
Revue Noir
Black Tape for a Blue Girl
The Peculiar Pretzelmen
Also I've found loads of freaky Klezmer and Balkan-infuenced stuff that sounds unbelievable! My favourites are;
Goran Bregovic
Almaailman Vasarat
The Extra Action Marching Band
Municipale Balkanica
Black Ox Orkestar

Check 'em out!

That was cool. Started off very dieselpunk, ended up in fantasy steampunk.

The beginning reminded me of Half-Life, for some reason...

I've just come across an astounding group known as the Avett Brothers. They're a delicious combination of folk, a hint of bluegrass, and dare I say ragtime? You should all check them out, they're quite the charm

Tally Hall (most famous for "Banana Man") doesn't dress steampunk and they don't call themselves a steampunk band, but some of their music is most definitely steampunkish, and they get played on Clockwork Cabaret a lot.

This is the video for their song, "Hidden in the Sand", off their album, "Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum":

I chose the bands that I suggested for this list because I know all of their shows would be completely appropriate to go to in Steampunk garb. I guess I consider a band up for more of a Steampunk categorization if you can go to their show dressed exactly as you like and fit right in as a Steampunk.

I would have to say this is the closest definition for a 'Steampunk' band I could come up with as well. This is something I have often thought about, but as Steampunk is not a musical genre per se. I was very pleasantly surprised to see Steampunks at the VNV Nation show in London last weekend!

While I agree with some of what's been said, I don't feel that to Genre categorise is to be 'narrow minded' per se. The point, IMO, of Genres is to help the 'consumer' to easily identify music they may be interested in. After all, there's such a wealth of easily available music now that without Genre, one would not be able to see the proverbial forest for the trees. I can appreciate, as an artist, not wanting to pidgeon hole or define yourself, because this can in some way close doors, however I don't personally feel that Genre is a bad thing.

If you're purely creating music for your -own- pleasure and do not care what others think at all, or if they listen or purchase it, then there is no need for genre. However if you are looking, in any way, to produce a product for 'consumption', some identification of that product is (perhaps sadly?) necessary.

When I look at the all of the bands listed here if a person had access to all of these bands I think one really could stream a radio station 24/7 with just a steampunk format.

Might I mention our own band or would that be self indulgent?

We are called Moth. (Not to be confused with the USA band of the same name)
