First off, thank you everybody for your submissions. They’re wonderful and i will announce the folks in 2 days time. (if you haven’t sent and want to… basically please do it tomorrow). Thank you all for your interest and based on the response i will make sure to do this again to allow folks who didn’t get in this time to do so next time around.
In the meantime, i really wanted to share my new favorite thing. Psyche Corp, who plays Han-Mi sends me youtube vids occasion, whenever the mood strikes or even sometimes when she sees something that pertains to something in the cabaret (some of them are even what she imagine another character feeling based on the plot she’s aware of, which has been interesting because a couple times it’s a… shade of emotion i hadn’t thought of.)
Anyway, a few days ago she sent me this, and I FRICKIN LOVE THIS. The style is electro swing, a genre i’m about to really dive into listening wise, but off the cuff, Caravan Palace just DOES it for me and encapsulates an intro into a genre i’m really ready to hear. Obviously it’s centered on the merging between old style and new. It’s not simply a mimic of the old style (something i’m struggling with), it truly fuses a current, modern sample based, beat making approach with the soul of the old, the old soul nicely remaining and shining through. I’m really in love with this band, and they will be my gateway.
