Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction which denotes works set in an era where steam power is still widely used. Alternate history-style presentations of 19th century and often Victorian-era Britain blends with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments, like the computer, occur at an earlier date.

For four years Sepiachord.com has tirelessly explored the strange musical underground where contemporary artists take pre-modern sonic elements and use them to create innovative new music. Now Sepiachord.com joins forces with Projekt Records to present a CD collection of the best of these musicians: A Sepiachord Passport.

With performers hailing from Seattle to London and from New York to Norway, this compilation presents twenty(!) songs that meld dark cabaret, gypsy punk, neo-folk, twisted waltzes and circus blues with pop, rock, hip-hop, world music and the avant-garde. A Sepiachord Passport is sure to take listeners (pleasantly) by surprise!

This wide-ranging collection was carefully curated by the creators of the Sepiachord.com website to include talented up-and-comers alongside established artists to ensure that listeners experience a CD that is both familiar and novel.

  • Black Tape for a Blue Girl’s track features Nicki Jaine on vocals.
  • Nathaniel Johnstone is a key member of the band Abney Park and is featured here in his first solo outing.
  • The Tiger Lillies haven’t appeared on a compilation in years. (Normally you can only purchase their work directly from them.)
  • Professor Elemental and The Men That Will Not Be Blamed for Nothing are making their American debut on this CD.
  • “If I Told You Once” is one of the last songs recorded by the seminal act Circus Contraption.
  • A Sepiachord Passport is a unique collection bringing together these TWENTY artists together for the first time.
  • The selection of material will appeal to both fans of contemporary burlesque/neo-vaudville and to the burgeoning Steampunk scene.
