Long live Róisín Murphy, Trendsetter extraordinaire

Continuing with the early's 90s vibes that "Orally Fixated" left off with, "Momma's Place" is fantastically dancy. This time around Róisín is wrapping her silky and sexy vocals in looped drums and bassy-synths. It's a perfect example of what makes her so incredible as an artist: while everyone else is releasing 80s pastiche records, Róisín is setting the trend and jumping forward a decade.

Lyrically Róisín vamps it up, telling the youngsters that they didn't create being bad. It's something that almost anyone over the age of 30 can relate to. "I bet you think I look respectable / you should've seen me in my prime ... It's all been done, your brand new craze / It all begun at Momma's place". She's not just addressing the club kids, she's telling it like it is to La Roux, Lady Gaga (who owes a lot of her fabulous fashion to Momma Murphy), and the rest. She has no signs of stopping, and I have a feeling that Róisín Murphy is going to continue to set the standard in dance-pop for a very long time. Long may Momma reign.

GaGa Long Before GaGa Was GaGa

This song is pure genious, I have always loved her music from Moloko days and through the solo stuff including the brilliant Overpowered. This song is pure 90's house with a disco kick and backed up by great lyrics aimed at her newborn child.
Sadly she will never be as successful as Lady GaGa even tho she was here and doing it all long before she came about, this will get no airplay and will probably not sell too well, shame because it quite literally bloody brilliant.

Style With Substance

I've long been a fan of Roisin but even by her high standards this song is a killer! Despite heavily referencing early 90's house, the production manages to sound very 2010. Think the Pet Shop Boys on speed!

The sentiment of the lyrics, a conversation with her unborn child, is pure Roisin Murphy: eschewing the predictable and saccharine in favour of something far more meaningful and interesting.

After six studio albums (including four as one half of Moloko), it's good to see her far from running out of steam. In fact, you get the impression she's still got a lot more to offer.

Biography

Born: 05 July 1973 in Arklow, Ireland

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

During her time as the frontwoman of Moloko and throughout her solo career, Róisín Murphy made a name for herself as a purveyor of adventurous, omnivorous pop that blended influences as far-flung as disco and hot jazz. Born in Dublin, Murphy moved from Ireland to Manchester, England with her family when she was 12, and remained there even after her parents returned to Dublin four years later. On her own at 16, Murphy had no aspirations to sing until she met producer Mark Brydon, with whom she formed...
