Roisin Murphy. Let Me Know (2007).

A propos of nothing, I wanted to share this video by the lovely oddball, Roisin Murphy.  Roisin's last full-length album, Overpowered, was 5, almost 6, years ago.  Since then she has made a couple of babies and a few singles with a variety of collaborators.

File away this little piece of advice - if you're ever having a bad day, just watch this video and, I promise, you will feel so much better.

There are a bunch of quirky girls out there and I enjoy their work; you've got your gagas, katys, nickis, and bjorks, what have you.  I feel Roisin is a bit more down to earth and at the same time more inscrutable.  The signs and symbols she presents seem more difficult to read.  Whereas the others are clearly extroverts that are more than happy to explain themselves, it seems as if Roisin is an introvert who makes you work a bit harder to interpret her.  Her Myface and Spacebook are like ghost towns and her last tweet is years old. is in Japanese.  And a Blogspot fan site hasn't been updated in almost a year.  A mysterious enigma.
