Go to the Jean-Jacques Perrey & Dana Countryman website  Jean-Jacques Perrey & Dana Countryman - The Happy Electropop Music Machine! [Oglio - 2006]

The Happy Electropop Music Machine finds electronic, tapesplice-innovator and Moog-popster Jean-Jacques Perrey, joined by the talented musician and retro-obsessed Dana Countryman. The two create one of the most fun and happy albums you'll have come across, in a very long time: it literally jumps out of the speakers shouting 'be happy, smile!'

The album mixes Moog style analogue synth's, along with acoustic instruments. The sound will be instantly recognisable for anyone familiar with any of the classic 1960's Perrey & Kingsley albums like the In Sound From Way Out. Though this does have a more modern production feel, a slightly warmer, feel somehow. The tracks mix favourite melodies, with new compositions, always keeping an ear on being fun, quirky and guaranteed to paint a smile on the gloomiest of faces. Joyful tunes fly, animal and comic samples appear here and there. It's just really like one big audio party, balloons and jelly on tap.

Really the cheesiest albums you'll ever have, wonderfully played with real passion. Surely everyone needs to laugh and smile sometime? 100 % guaranteed to brighten up your day. There's not many albums that can claim that! To hear some samples pop along here.
