Steampunk Big Band: Darcy James Argue

Canary sings along to this, while lobster hums.

Darcy James Argue describes the compositions of his 18-piece Secret Society as "steampunk big band." Find out why at his blog here.

This is "Redeye" from their latest, Infernal Machines.

Some affinities to Robert Fripp, Eno, Carla Bley, Terje Rypdal,a hint of Miles from the days of Bitch's Brew... but this is something uniquely old/new, an orchestral voice all his own.
