Róisín Murphy Has A Hunger

roisin_highresIrish 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.)

Roisin Murphy Knows That Lady GaGa’s Imitation Is In Fact Flattery

roisingagaYesterday the news went around that Irish dance innovator Roisin Murphy had called out the steamroller that is Lady GaGa for ripping off her style, and the speaking-up was cheered, as the similarities between the two performers’ looks had been a point of contention for a while among connoisseurs of really good pop music. As it turned out, though, Murphy was in fact the victim of another game of Press Telephone, and issued a statement yesterday entitled “STOP PRESS! WHEN SHOULDER PADS CLASH!!” It read, in part, “I respect Lady Gaga’s work as an artist and as a fellow fashion icon. She is a very talented performer, playing the piano, singing live and dancing too. I Don’t Care about Shoulder pads!” Of course, Murphy’s lack of being bothered didn’t stop a member of Oh No They Didn’t from putting together a matrix of Roisin and GaGa similarities. And, well… it’s very striking, to say the least. More »
