Songs that are a throwback to the 1930s-1960s?

I like Amy Winehouse, psychobilly, the Pipettes, the Acid House Kings, the O Brother... soundtrack, and even that throw-back-to-the-Andrews-Sisters Christina Aguilera song. I have a craving for music produced in the now but inspired by the 1930s to early 1960s, with my favourite era being the 1940s. Can you recommend anymore good contemporary rock/pop bands along these lines, including psychobilly bands I may not have heard about yet? [more inside]

Blue-toned political video filter.

Music video question: It's probably from the late '90s or early aughts, and it might be a Canadian band, rock-pop. I remember the lead singer might be named Dave, or have his band named after him in some way, but it's not Dave Matthews. It's just a video staged in a blue studio with text overlaid about current socio-economic and political crises in the world. Decoration is very sparse and involved things like ladders and amps; the blue tone to the video is overwhelming. Can you help me find this music video?
