Overview

The Moog Cookbook's self-titled debut is a mix of the obscure, the intriguing, and the humorous: a near-masterpiece of '80s and '90s alterna-rock hits redone on vintage '70s Moog synthesizers. Although many may pass the band off as a goof, upon closer inspection, the duo's electronic restructurings of these covers are both entrancing and fascinating. It's almost impossible to imagine how somebody could redo the fiery Hendrix stomp of Lenny Kravitz's 1993 hit "Are You Gonna Go My Way?" as an icy computerized piece, but the Moog Cookbook somehow find a way. What about Nirvana's alienated anthem "Smells Like Teen Spirit" as a Stevie Wonder funk workout? Or Pearl Jam's "Evenflow" as a techno dance rave-up? All of these wacked-out versions can be found here. Also included is a cheesy lounge version of R.E.M.'s "The One I Love," a furious take on Neil Young's "Rockin' In the Free World," and a rendition of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" with a Latin feel. The Moog Cookbook's debut is one of the most enjoyably silly releases to come along in ages.
