Electric Swing Circus - Bella Belle

These guys are pretty good.

Not bad. I've been flirting with electric swing a bit with Tape Five.

Yeah, Tape Five is good. I think my favourite track by them is Avenue du Gare:


If you lean more toward the "electro" side of "electro-swing," Parov Stelar is also great:


Also, I'm almost positive that I've posted this before, but I can't talk about electro-swing without bringing up Caravan Palace. I like pretty much all of the music they've put out. Apparently they're doing a North American tour soon, and I've heard their live show is great. I kind of doubt they'll be coming anywhere near my city, but I can always hope, haha.

It feels like indie sacrilege but I like T&S's new album more than their old stuff.

I thought their switch to electropop wasn't the best move on their part, seeing as it's trending again, and T&S had no prior experience with it as a genre. They're on a completely different wavelength putting themselves to shame compared next to the more innovative electropop artists of the 10's, such as The Knife, Atoms For Peace, How To Destroy Angels, and CHVRCHES. However, they're only really comparable to Charli XCX and CHVRCHES, and this is not to say that Heartthrob was completely bad. Just really uninspired yet catchy pop songs carried by the hype of their style change, if you know what I mean.

I've never really been a fan of HtDA or The Knife; just checked out the rest of the bands you mentioned and CHVRCHES is cool. I agree Heartthrob is not groundbreaking but pleasant and catchy is enough for me.

Cool man, more CHRVCHES fans.
Yeah The Knife and HtDA are kind of hard to get into. You'd like Atoms for Peace if you like the more electronic Radiohead albums, seeing as its Thom Yorkes solo deal

You're damn right their live show is great!

I've watched just about every video of them live that I can find. It's pretty impressive how they manage to pull off so much of their electronic material on-stage — it sounds different, but not at all in a bad way.

Yeah I'm hoping to see them sometime too. That's really cool stuff. In some songs I'd almost prefer it without singing, but that's not my decision.

Today I learned there's an overwhelming amount of new aggrotech artists coming from Russia, like they never got to experience any kind of industrial dance up until the 10's.

I remember one of Jim Noir's songs being featured in LittleBigPlanet. Never actually got to listening any other songs than My Patch.

Just started listening to the newest album. 'S alright.

Isn't his stuff done entirely by himself?

I've listened to the album with 'my patch' on it. I like the way he records/masters his stuff, sounds old.
