France, 1968, space age pop / electronic
Jean-Jacques Perrey – The Amazing New Electronic Pop Sound of Jean-Jacques Perrey: The real-life frontier of space isn’t warp speed. It’s slow. Very slow. Lots of chrome lobbies and white-walled waiting rooms. I mean gleaming white. The trip was billed as “a short jaunt to the Moon”, but it’s not so short in reality. The in-flight entertainment and food are just as crappy as their terrestrial counterparts. During your long layover at a space station, kick back at what passes for a Starbucks now and enjoy all the quaint songs of your childhood re-imagined for the space age.
