I will keep an eye out for Trampled By Turtles, the band name is enough to catch my interest.

I haven't really been keeping up with a lot of the new bands, my buddy has named off a couple to me, but after losing my What.CD account I haven't been able to get new albums. That said though Jay Munly is back with a new album entitled Petr and the Wulf (2010) under the moniker Munly & the Lupercalians that is classic Munly.

Also if anyone is interested I made a Gothic Country mix tape a little while ago: God Damned Country

Is dark cabaret basically a form of dark industry?

Hello children,

It's been over a year since I last visited this little hideaway. I am delighted to see you are stubbornly sticking around, despite the stagnant nature of this genre.

I'm about to begin a research paper and am considering writing about this genre, at least the americana/country parts of it, perhaps briefly mentioning the dark cabaret.

My question for you good people to ponder is, what would be an interesting article to read concerning this style? I would like to stay away from a historical rendering. I also would not like to focus too much on one band/artist.

I am considering focusing on a question, like, "Will this genre every see the respect like it's literary counterpart?" or "Could this genre ever catch on and become more accessible?"

Thoughts?

I'd say write an article on how it's more of a response to the god awful pop country that has been plaguing the airwaves for so long now, a complete antithesis to the status quo.

Yeah, I considered that approach as well. As a matter of fact, someone else suggested that to me yesterday.

Interesting thread. I immediately thought of Tarnation. They were on 4AD back in the day with Cocteau Twins, Throwing Muses, Belly and Dead Can Dance.

Has anyone mentioned Timber Timbre yet?
their stuff (especially the self titled third album) is very unnerving and although more folk than country that dark spirit still surges through every beat

I've been mulling this over and am coming up blank. What is the literary counterpart - stuff like Poe, Lovecraft, etc.? If I were writing it I think I would look at the development over time. Why are you excluding that trope?
