There have been a few times I’ve written about nostalgia (and I predict there will many more). In short, everything about nostalgia fascinates me. Especially because I feel it so strongly with eras in history that I have not even the slightest connection to. Constantly I find myself going out of my way to embody qualities or mannerisms of time periods which I never lived. There is just something attractive to me about things that are old and worn which evokes an unidentified but strong sense of admiration – in a way that makes me want to give off a similar impression.
Anyways, just the other week I came across a style of music that I’ve quickly developed a love for. It brings an eerie sound of old swing music together with modern day electronic beats, and has been simply enough been named Electroswing. For me, I cannot keep my foot from tapping when I hear it, which soon takes over my entire body. Check it out, it is very, very cool.
Here are 3 of my favorite Electroswing songs listed in order of my liking (my favorite being first) – hope you enjoy it!
