Electronic music pioneer Jean-Jacques Perrey's 1970 album has dated rather hilariously, but therein lies its not inconsiderable charm. The follow-up to 1968's equally bouncy THE AMAZING NEW ELECTRIC SOUND OF JEAN-JACQUES PERREY, MOOG INDIGO sounds alternately like Spike Jones without irony, various period commercial jingles for products the world didn't need, or an easy listening pop album gone completely bonkers. High points include the title tune, a funk excursion in which Perrey coaxes his synthesizer to produce a credible simulation of a barking seal, "Soul City," which has more wacka-wacka guitar than anything this side of an Isacc Hayes album, and, of course, a de rigeur "Flight of the Bumblebee" in which the titular electronically enhanced bug sounds more than usually cheesed off, perhaps because Perrey forgot to credit Rimsky-Korsakov and added an intro ripped off from the Zombies "She's Not There." A genuine hoot.
