Steampunk Music: "Sundown", by Daedelus


A bit busy with father's day celebrations (including the Southern Bay-marinaded Pork shoulder currently on the grill), but I did wish to impart a Happy Father's day to all those lucky enough to have young ones!  A quick video from Daedelus, titled "Sundown", will be the highlighted musical interlude today!  For more information on the gentleman's works, please visit: http://www.mushrecords.com/artist/Daedelus.php

(Also, my thanks to all who have visited the Steampunk Tribune - this small corner of the internet surpassed the half-million hits mark!)

Even if the video has some steampunk visual elements, the song doesnt sound steampunk. The same happens with Abney park: the do dress up, but the music is obviously a mediocre industrial rock. Something that could be called steampunk music is any band that dare to mix electronica, rock or whatever, with a classical sound that you could find in the victorian era, or "americana". Seek PiƱataland.

@ Mr. Dabdoub - As a fan of classical music and jazz, I will concur that it may not be an exact fit into whatever Steampunk music may defined as.
The debate of the definition of Steampunk music has been raging on longer than I would care to address, and I would concede the debate to those who have more knowledge about music than I. However, I would concede that the imagery of the video is certainly more representative of the genre than the musical performance.
