Some time ago, Bujold mentioned that he listens to techno swing. So, having never heard of such a thing, would you like to recommend me some?

The first electroswing band I discovered was Caravan Palace, which can best be described as a modern day Reinhardt-influenced swing band with electronic beat and backing. They only have one album out, but it's great. Their second single's music video is a good example of their style:

Another musician I discovered recently is Parov Stelar, an Austrian DJ who is sometimes described as one of the fathers of the genre. He's usually more electronic than swing, but that depends on the song. His most popular song on Youtube is Catgroove, but the gravity-defying gentleman probably helps with the views:

His songs are more hit-or-miss (depending on your tastes), but I heartily recommend listening to Matilda (slightly more pop), Chambermaid Swing and Charleston Butterfly (both more swing than electronic)

Also, the proper name for the genre would be electroswing since techno is a subgenre of electronic music and not every electroswing is techno, but since I can't tell the difference between electronic genres myself, I won't be too pedantic about it.

That Caravan Palace song starts off sounding Daft Punk-ish, very neat.

I've been listening to bootleg Eastbound & Down seasons. Early Man, Drug Rug, Dynamite Brothers, Mew.

And two stupidly catchy old songs I hadn't heard:

On an unrelated note, here's what would happen if Justin Bieber and Cannibal Corpse switched genres for a day:

The new "Oooh, suffer, and then you die" in Hammersmashed Face kills me every time, and I could listen to the Bieber one all day.

In the interest of keeping this thing alive, go ahead and recommend me some house music. It's a guilty pleasure of mine, esspecially stuff from the mid 90's
