In the last throes of winter wind,
I am hunkered down at home,
reminding myself that making mashups
is also a form of storytelling.

A major part of the preparations for Róisearch – the ekstatic dance party that the amazing Róisearch Kollucktíf in Toronto held on 9 July in awe and honour of Ms. Róisín Murphy – was spending time deep in Moloko’s back catalogue and with Ms. Murphy’s singles and collaborations. Her. Lyrical. Power. It got me thinking-feeling about what it might have been to grow up on the dance floors of Mad-chester, about my own accidental relationship with Moloko, about how dancefloors can save you, make you queer, about everything that hangs between creativity and loss.

And then, the day before the party, I listened to the new album and received the gift of “Thoughts Wasted.” Dystopian emotional artchitextures. Navigating the tube. It turned my ear toward the quiet conversations that traffic between mundanity and conceptual efflorescence.

Everywhere I go I see construction. Re-construction. Orange vests. Caution. Be careful. Work is happening here. There is still work to be done. It’s incessant. It’s essential. And to think that any intimacy, any artistry is still possible amid all the dust…out of the din and the gloom.

Eccolà. Per te.

Róisín Murphy’s Masterful fourth solo album, Take Her Up To Monto, is out now.

Thoughts Wasted (Róisín Murphy) + Next Dimension Beauty (808 State) = Wasted Beauty

A mezzanotte in punto
si sente un grande rumor
sono gli scariolanti lerì lerà
che vengono al lavor.‎

Volta, rivolta
e torna a rivoltar.‎
noi siam gli scariolanti lerì lerà
che vanno a lavorar.‎

A mezzanotte in punto
si sente una tromba suonar
sono gli scariolanti lerì lerà
che vanno a lavorar.‎

Volta, rivolta
e torna a rivoltar.‎
noi siam gli scariolanti lerì lerà
che vanno a lavorar.‎

Gli scariolanti belli
son tutti ingannator
vanno a ingannar la bionda lerì lerà
per un bacin d’amor.‎

Volta, rivolta
e torna a rivoltar.‎
noi siam gli scariolanti lerì lerà
che vanno a lavorar.‎

Shaking the Habitual, the perfectly titled new album from the incredible Swedish duo The Knife is streaming here. (Thanks to MM for sharing.)

Also, if you want more context for their return to producing music as The Knife after several years, there’s a great piece in the Guardian. Judith Butler is a named influence on the conceptualization of this album.
