I applaud your correct Irish accenting.

She seems like the type of person who'd refuse to perform where her name is often misspelled.

I could very easily believe as much, yes.

So I just checked both her solo and Moloko's last.fm pages on past events and she's never played in L.A. ever. The only shows she's done in the U.S. are in NY and you can count them in one hand.

I don't want to say she owes us anything, but we haven't gotten a chance to hear two decades worth of material live. At this point, Coachella booking her can be classified as a miracle.

When on earth is Roisin Murphy going to release another solo album? Well overdue. In the meantime, Billboard has an "exclusive" first play of "Leviathan" the new Freedom Five song featuring Roisin. A wonderful 8-minute spaced out jam. Almost as strong as "Simulation", probably her best non-album track. We can't embed SoundCloud files on here, can we? Here's the link (http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/code/5893933/code-first-play-freeform-five-featuring-roisin-murphy-leviathan).

Don't think there's an active Roisin thread. Sorry if I missed it. She - finally - has a new album coming out. The first song to be released or buzz single or whatever the hell we're calling it is called "Gone Fishing" (https://soundcloud.com/miss-roisin-murphy/gone-fishing), a song inspired by the great Paris is Burning documentary. Not sure what I was expecting - perhaps another delicious slice of insistent disco-house - but not this rather somber, down-tempo curiosity. After a couple of listens, I think it's gorgeous, though. This woman's voice is so damn seductive. The production is rather evocative too.

Also heading out on tour
Pitchfork

Róisín Murphy is back with Hairless Toys, her first album in eight years. The follow-up to Overpowered comes out May 11 via Play It Again Sam. The lead track, "Gone Fishing", was inspired by the film Paris Is Burning. Listen to it above. Below, find the album tracklist. Murphy has also announced a string of live shows. Check out the list below.
Said Murphy in a press release:

This song was written after I watched the documentary film Paris Is Burning, having read an article which referenced it in a discussion about House music's origins in black, gay culture. I was deeply moved by this film. 'I had to run this far from home' - it's about the outcasts who could never fit into mainstream society and how they created a safe place in the drag 'Ball' scene of New York in the ‘80s. 'Will we live on? The children of La Beija' refers to the 'house' of Pepper La Beija, who was one of the most notable figures on the scene, Pepper is also quoted in Malcolm McLaren's song on the same subject 'Deep In Vogue'. The culture was a flamboyant reaction to persecution and disillusionment, the imagination and bravery of these kids is simply awe-inspiring. I envisioned 'Gone Fishing' almost as a song from a Broadway musical version of this story. The making of one's own world, a safer world and the creation of a new, better family in music or youth culture is a theme I touch upon elsewhere on my album Hairless Toys.

01 Gone Fishing
02 Evil Eyes
03 Exploitation

Roisin dropped another of the tracks from Hairless Toys, "Exploitation". It feels bit Grace Jones'y. It's lovely, but a bit slight. I think "Gone Fishing" is stronger. Hope whatever we hear next is a bit bolder.

We should probably talk about the absolutely smashing video that Roisin made for "Exploitation". Here's (http://www.promonews.tv/videos/2015/04/15/roisin-murphy-exploitation-roisin-murphy#.VS95PaBjX_0.twitter) a great overview of the—of course—expertly curated references she makes throughout the video including the weirdest ad for a department store you've ever seen starring Faye Dunaway. And an obscure Cassavetes film I'd certainly never seen.

Clearly, I'm having a conversation with myself there, but here we are with another reference-heavy, retro video from Roisin for single #2. The most obvious reference is Ingmar Bergman's Persona. Really beautifully done. If this music thing works out, I think Roisin has a second career as a director and maybe even actress tied up nicely.
