This outfit has been mentioned here before, and now, long time in the making, they have released their album on I-tunes:

I am not a guitar person per se, but I was surprised how wonderfully light and relaxed the Tiki Gods sound. They concocted a successful mixture of Soundtrack, Exotica and Surf influences.

In addition, their bass player and art director is the talented animator/artist Chris Reccardi whose work I have always admired:

This is great news.
I have the 3 songs he did in the 90s.
And I saw him and his band at the Key Club
Downstairs lounge a few years back.
If this is anything like that show.
It will be really worth checking out.

I just realized that this is the album I've been listening to at work for the last half hour.

Love the cover art, and the music. Two thumbs way up. I'm very relaxed right now.

This is an awesome album. I've been spinning it a lot on my iPod for the last month. EE did it right.

I went...Wow! I'll just let the photos do the talking...

















...and this was their very first show! The band sounded great, glad I decided to go!

Very good to see Marie & Jonpaul & Syd in attendance as well.

Did anyone notice custom TIKI GODS guitar straps the band was using, lookie here!



BTD was correct, not to be missed.

I don't think those are custom. They look like the Planet Waves Tiki straps.
