I recently discovered Steam Powered Giraffe. They have a lot of that barber shop/cabaret style which is really awesome to see incorporated into a modern band. Some of their music, I like a lot but a lot of it is a little "eh" or try hard to me... and the steam punk back story is a little too juvenile for me (Sorry if you like that). Anyway, I want to know if anyone knows any other groups who do a similar thing? I need something to hold me over until Act V.

Here're songs that I enjoy by SPG: 'Honeybee', 'Automatonic Electronic Harmonics', 'Brass Goggles', 'Rex Marksley', The Suspender Man'.

The Speed Of Sound In Seawater has some (SOME) elements that are similar (vocal harmonies/swapping lead vocals)
Especially their newest album



Then there's Katzenjammer.
Norwegian.
Killer harmonies.

Brontosaurus too

One plays guitar/keyboards (at the same time)
Other plays guitar/drums (AT THE SAME TIME)
Both sing (GUESS WHEN? SAME TIME!)
Maybe not exactly what you're looking for but the cabaret piano is definitely there on some songs
