Melody's Echo Chamber guitarist Pablo Padovani - aka Moodoïd - came to wider attention last September when his band of liquid leaf-adorned waifs released their self-titled debut EP. Produced by Tame Impala's Kevin Parker (also ex-boyfriend of Echo Chamber leader Melody Prochet), it garnered critical attention beyond Padovani's native France. Deep and textured, 'Le Monde Möö' is an immersive next step. The six-minute 'La Lune' drifts like a spaceship, but centrepiece 'Les Oiseaux''s dreamy undulations best define a record that flits from glam rock to swirling psychedelia ('Yes & You'), and from funk to free jazz ('Heavy Metal Be Bop 2'). It's quite brilliant and rather mad.
