There's undoubtedly an arch, knowingly retro feel to all this, but since it's so lovingly and accurately reproduced - and all beautifully recorded to boot - you can't help but admire the likes of the queasily upbeat electric piano and lapsteel jaunt 'Jazz Computer', the Raymond Scott-like analogue country of 'Bad Ballet' and the lavish Italo disco routines of 'Miami Song Tennis 2'.
