So, I happened to come across this today, which is why I love music services like Spotify. It's by an English singer/songwriter names Lorraine Bowen. I've included a short bio below, but she seems to be the Weird Al of "tiki music." Suburban Exotica, Bossy Nova, and Vital Organs are all unusual takes on, as you probably guessed, Exotica, Bossa Nova, and Organ music. They're quite fun. I don't think has been posted, as searches turned up nothing.
“Mistress of Melody”, “Mary Poppins on Acid”, “Joyce Grenfell meets Madonna”, are all great quotes given to the hilarious singer/songwriter/performer Lorraine Bowen!
Lorraine is a fabulous performer, Very original and talented, she has been performing for many years all over the world. Wearing glamorous dresses reminiscent of 60s London fashion, she takes us into her world of colourful kitsch yet keeps us down to earth with a sense of mundane domesticity. Lorraine’s songs are about spinach, bicycles, disinfectant, mobile phones and her favourite film stars. Catchy choruses force the crowd to sing along and sometimes the audience members find themselves dancing on stage too! Lorraine’s shows are fun and very playful. She has performed from Vancouver to Venice, Bologna to Bradford and California to Chelmsford.
