Moodoïd is a psychedelic rock band founded in 2013 by Pablo Padovani, the project's leader and mastermind. Nicknamed the "new prodigy of French pop music", Pablo wrote and conceived a first very peculiar, pop and psychedelic album. They notably toured with Phoenix and played with renowned musician and producer Damon Albarn. Soaked in psychedelic pop and world music, the songs written by Pablo Padovani evoke Os Mutantes' tropicalism, Connan Mockasin's dreamy atmospheres, and Gong's progressive liberties. Supported by French lyrics, Moodoïd blasts genres, times, and horizons. Reptile is a natural evolution of the project towards a more modern sound, without losing its so peculiar synthetic and funky touch. The very composition of the tracks clearly indicated the need for studio musicians, in order to develop every disco/funk aspect of the record. The recording of the album happened in two sessions: first, Pablo set up the band and directed their recording (with experimented sound engineer Yann Arnaud), and then this "live" matter was reworked and integrated to Pierre Rousseau's more electronic production. The track "Reptile" is a new proof of Moodoïd's sloughing. Only passion and lust have resisted the project's solitary soul Pablo Padovani's metamorphosis. Moodoïd changes skin, but skins keep on caressing. More erotic than toxic, Moodoïd's new venom progresses through funky guitar and synthetic arpeggios, with Pierre Rousseau and Pablo's producing, and David Wrench (The XX, Hot Chip, LA Priest) mixing. Includes CD.
