Stolen Idols debut album will be released May 16, 2014.

From Florida, Stolen Idols present authentic exotica, the mid-century tropical mood music pioneered by Martin Denny and Les Baxter. Playing primarily in the Tampa Bay region since 2008, Stolen Idols were among the sonic highlights of the Hukilau, Fort Lauderdale's annual tiki festival, in 2009 and 2010. "Moonlight Offerings," the debut album by Stolen Idols, features Drew Farmer (piano), Kent Oldfield (vibes, marimba, percussion), Daniel Navarro (acoustic bass), Scott Bihorel Yañez (congas and bongos) Ivan Ftorek (drums, percussion), and Jeff Browder (percussion). With lush arrangements and hypnotic rhythms, "Moonlight Offerings" conjures an exotic paradise with all the color of a Gauguin Tahitian landscape. Prepare to travel to steamy jungles, South Seas islands and Far East gardens – in just over an hour, without spilling a drop of your mai tai!

Here is the (gorgeous!) cover art by Robert Jimenez!

Thanks for the kind words! Ixtahuele are amazing, and I so regret not being able to attend Hukilau last year. We'd love to do a gig in Europe with you, or anyplace else for that matter!
