Le Monde Möö
2015 repress. Le Monde Möö, originally released in 2014, follows Moodoïd's acclaimed 2013 singles Je Suis La Montagne/La Chanson Du Ciel De Diamants and De Folie Pure/Je Sais Qui Tu Es, which featured production from Kevin Parker of Tame Impala. That pair of records showcased the multiple talents and obsessions of principle songwriter and guitarist Pablo Padovani (Melody's Echo Chamber): psychedelia, glam rock, world music, and experimental pop. Le Monde Möö, Moodoïd's debut full-length release, was produced and mixed by Nicolas Vernhes (who has previously worked with Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, and Deerhunter), and features Melody's Echo Chamber, Didier Malherbe (Gong), Riff Cohen, and Padovani's father, cult jazz saxophonist Jean-Marc Padovani. Filled with unorthodox scales and asymmetric time signatures, yet remaining highly musical and fluid, the album incorporates exotic instruments and melodies into more classic pop arrangements. Feeding analog synthesizers and off-kilter electric guitars through Leslie cabinets and echo chambers, it falls somewhere between the melodies of Robert Wyatt and the dream-like psychedelia of Connan Mockasin. This repress includes "Le lac d'or," a track exclusive to this edition.
