come to momma

We're only a few days into 2010 and the new music is coming in fast and furious.

Without missing a beat (oh, the glorious puns abound) Róisín Murphy returns with the second track from her forthcoming album.

"Momma's Place", a rugged, throbbing, funky, house number, will be available via AWAL (Artists Without A Label) under the label name Mickey Murphy's Daughter. It sounds more in line with the vibe of Róisín's previous longplayer, "Overpowered", much more than the start-stop stutter of "Orally Fixated", the first song she previewed from her next album.

Here's a little clip of the song that appeared on YouTube today. This is gonna be MASSIVE!

Damn! It makes me wanna run around and smash things! It's big and bold. I love the freestyle elements sprinkled throughout, especially the keyboard riff which reminds me a bit of "Domino Dancing" by Pet Shop Boys. Then there's the zippy little Italo house breakdown in the middle. And isn't it about time someone put orchestra hits back into today's dance jams?

The sleeve art, if we're still using that terminology in these dizzy, digital days, features Róisín in the throes of full on pregnancy sporting a fetching, feathery frock and splashed out in stark, white, porcelain face make up in a sort of Victorian kabuki combo.

The tracklisting for the single, replete with a cadre of remixes, is as follows:

1. Momma's Place
2. Momma's Place (Bongo Boys Remix)
3. Momma's Place (Kanji Kinetic Remix)
4. Momma's Place (Shake Aletti Remix)
5. Momma's Place (Heavy Feet's Heavy What Remix)


  1. Oooooh, Vinny. I don't know about orchestra hits... I'm still recovering from the Phil Oakey/Giorgio Moroder album!

  2. This is going to be huge on my 2010 iTunes playlist! Thanks for the heads up on this.
