Roisin Murphy Take Her Up To Monto on 2LP + Download

Róisín Murphy presents her new album Take Her Up To Monto, released in June 2016 via Play It Again Sam. Continuing the process of re-emergence that began with 2014's Mi Senti EP and 2015's critically acclaimed, Mercury Prize nominated album Hairless Toys, Take Her Up To Monto is an album which crackles with wild invention. If Mi Senti EP was a "love letter" to Murphy's creative life, then the sessions that followed were a full-blown symphony. 

 Five intensive weeks working alongside long term musical collaborator Eddie Stevens resulted in enough material for two albums. Hairless Toys served to ease her audience into this new phase of Murphy's career, before hitting them full force with Take Her Up To Monto. Flights of disco fancy, dark cabaret, the sonorities of classic house and electronica, the joy and heartbreak of pure pop, torch song drama, Take Her Up To Monto has everything Murphy's always done – but seen afresh. Made into new, strange shapes. The title originates from an Irish folk song, popularized by The Dubliners and sung to Róisín by her father – "It's me and my rhythm. It's very simple, really – but very complicated."

Murphy and Stevens left some of the remaining songs almost as they'd initially demoed them, and radically reworked others as the character of the album became clearer. Like "Mastermind," the breathless disco epic that opens Take Her Up To Monto, which got a boost in scope from Murphy's rekindled love of kicking out the jams and the high drama of live performance thanks to touring Hairless Toys. Elsewhere the hook laden "Ten Miles High" and "Romantic Comedy" sit alongside some of her most architecturally magnificent song structures yet.

1. Mastermind
2. Pretty Gardens
3. Thoughts Wasted
4. Lip Service
5. Ten Miles High
6. Whatever
7. Romantic Comedy
8. Nervous Sleep
9. Sitting and Counting
