I'm currently compiling a compilation for my blog 'Dark & Tiki', which a twist on the whole subculture/sub genre in which I am looking at the dark side of the Tiki.

I have a few bands going such as;

Bohren & der Club of Gore: a Dark Jazz/Lounge ensemble from Germany
The Kilimanjaro Dark Jazz Ensemble: a sort of Exotica/Lounge/Jazz group from Europe
Heroin and Your Veins: a total lounge act ala Twin Peaks/Bohren style
Dale Cooper Quartet & the Dictaphones: a dark jazz/lounge/twin peaks styled group from France

There is ALOT more out there, and I'm open to NEW & OLD records!

Thanks for looking and I appreciate the help!!!

The group Walk the Plank may fit your criteria. There is currently an active thread about them. I just saw them at Hukilau 2010 and really dug them.

Kava Kon would definitely fit the bill!

Shit, even my side projects would work!

Resonance, 10-Speed Guillotine, Weird Lovemakers!

Let me know where to upload/send some tracks.

Good luck with the project, sounds intriguing!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Awesome, I like the link between those styles. Wow, new bands to listen too.

Blue Hawaiians kind of fit too.
In a more electronic way, I like Andrew Pekler's latest album. :

Tipsy too.
John Zorn's "Gift", "Taboo and Exile" and The Dreamers" and "O'o"

Or Garbarek and others at ECM did some ambiant jazz.

But I think I'm out of what you're looking for...

It's a really tight rift in the Exotica/Lounge sub-genre. I'm convinced there's some older recordings that were more on the darker side. Like Les Baxter's early work with Samuel Hoffman, extremely fascinating to hear such early orchestral songs accompanied by Theremin!

All those early recordings are my favorites, but I'm sifting through tons of old records in search for the Dark & Tiki!

I like the thrill of the hunt in case you haven't noticed!

I want to say I just SAW that record recently! I need to pick that one up! I loved the Ritual of the Savage album, but I'll go back and see if it's still there! Thanks!!

Not Exotica really,
but the Vanduras have some very dark songs.

The Vanduras are pretty awesome! Good find, and thanks for sharing. I like the smooth surf textures.. Another band to spotlight in the future!

In terms of tiki noir, you might be interested in my group's work... particularly the songs "Totem Pole," "Octopus Menagerie," and/or "Left Arm of Buddha" off of Adventures in Paradise; "Tiki," "Similau," and/or "When First I Love," off of New Sounds of Exotica; "Hana, Maui" from Paradise Lost and Found, "Wadada" from Rendezvous in Okonkuluku, and "Bwana, Bwana A", "Cave of Uldo," "Plamingo Flagoda," "Fuzzy Mammoth Breath," and "Satyritar" off of Charred Mammal Flesh: Exotic Music for BBQ.

All are available from iTunes or

no worries! It's mostly to be played in the background of my Podcasts really. As far as my compilation goes, I'm going through proper channels to include artists and their tracks with proper production and credit.

Thanks!! I'm going to have a listen now..
