It’s Saturday, so PERFECT TIME for another giveaway. I’m giving three lucky peeps a copy of ‘Hairless Toys‘, the brand new album from Róisín Murphy (her first album in 8 years!). Check below for details.
Róisín Murphy (pronounced ROW-SHEEN) is an Irish singer/songwriter known best as 1/2 of popular electronic music duo MOLOKO. also one of my absolutely FAVORITE artists. This past week, Róisín Murphy released her HIGHLY ANTICIPATED third solo album—’Hairless Toys‘. If you think about it, considering she’s been around since the early 90s…well, I guess the early 2000s as a SOLO artist, is kind of a travesty that she only has three albums out. Then again, Róisín Murphy is BAD-ASS and she does what she wants (including releasing an EP of Italian cover songs).
Hairless Toys‘ is Róisín Murphy‘s first album in 8 years-way too long if you ask me, but hey she wanted to start a family so I’ve got nothing but respect for her. The new record, her first since 2007’s EXCELLENT and quite possibly ahead of it’s time, ‘Overpowered‘ was released May 8th through Belgian Indie label, Play It Again Sam. The album features production by Eddie Stevens, a British musician and long-time collaborator of Murphy’s. On ‘Hairless Toys,’ Murphy returns without skipping a beat-once again ahead of the curve, experimenting with different soundscapes, all while keeping to her long-standing tradition of delivering delicate, haunting vocals over a powerful, driving baseline accentuated by quirky, left-of-center instrumentals. ‘Hairless Toys‘ has all the beautiful oddness that I loved about ‘Ruby Blue‘ (her 2005 debut) mixed with disco and house elements from ‘Overpowered‘ and various one-off singles. If ‘Ruby Blue‘ and ‘Overpowered‘ were to have a love child, it would be ‘Hairless Toys.’
While nothing has been announced yet regarding U.S. tour dates, Murphy has already started on her UK tour and if the reviews are any indication, she is BRINGING IT, costume changes, Italian cover songs and all.
