Papadosio have released the first single from the new Microdosio project, entitled “Fly Agaric”. The new venture from the Ohio-bred jamtronic group features the band downsizing its musical setup to something more simplistic on this tour, ultimately resulting in a new album.
The song features the simplistic approach to music that Papapdosio has been hyping up on the Microdosio Tour, where the band has returned the focus to synths, samplers, drum machines, and loopers alongside live instruments. “Fly Agaric” features the repetitive, trance-like rhythms that Papadosio begins with, then gradually builds up higher and higher into a three-dimensional strong structure. The song’s accompanying music video also reinforces this idea of getting back to the basics, as the band members are seen, for lack of a better word, quarantining themselves out in the desert in what could be construed as an attempt to isolate and reconnect with their roots. About halfway through the song, just as listeners think the next couple minutes will follow the same pattern, the song breaks and drops into a punchy, upbeat rhythm navigated by drummer Mike Healy and bassist Rob McConnell, as guitarist Anthony Thogmartin takes a step back to behind-the-scenes.
Watch the video for the first release from the forthcoming Microdosio album from Papadosio, entitled “Fly Agaric”.

Papadosio, like many acts, have been forced to postpone the remainder of March tour dates in response to the worldwide spread of the novel coronavirus and the deadly disease it causes, COVID-19. The band’s next scheduled appearance is at Union Stage in Washington, D.C. on April 3rd. Visit Papadosio’s website for up-to-date information on the status of all future shows.
