Róisín Murphy Has A Hunger

Irish dance diva/ Lady GaGa inspiration Róisín Murphy’s new single “Orally Fixated” is, lyrically, about as subtle as a hot fudge sundae topped with chocolate-covered pretzels and peanut butter and whipped cream, but oh does it sound good. It’s glitchy and giddy, with Murphy’s voice imperiously gliding over the proceedings, admonishing a greedy lover—although if my first few listens are to be trusted, this track will only get better the more I gorge on it. (Also, I was really not expecting one of the best guitar solos of recent memory to emanate from this particular corner of the pop-music world, but then again, the solo is becoming something of a lost art in music generally these days.)
