Róisín Murphy (her first name is pronounced ro-sheen) is an Irish electronica singer, songwriter, and producer, known to many as one half of dance duo Moloko. Three years after releasing her solo debut Ruby Blue to mixed reviews, Murphy finally has some new material out!
Her sophomore album, Overpowered, recently hit the stores and it is a clear return to a more electro-oriented sound for the former dancefloor queen. This is good news for Moloko fans who will no doubt welcome the change…

Peter Bjorn and John (unofficially abbreviated as PB&J) are a Swedish indie rock band, formed in Stockholm in 1999 and named after the band’s members: Peter Morén (vocals, guitar and harmonica), Björn Yttling (bass guitar, keyboards and vocals) and John Eriksson (drums, percussion and vocals).
They are best known for the 2006 single “Young Folks” (video above), which featured Victoria Bergsman, formerly of The Concretes, and was a top 20 hit in the UK Singles Chart.
MGMT, formerly named “The Management” (this name was already used by another artist so the band shortened it to “MGMT”), is an American musical duo based in Brooklyn, consisting of Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden.
Their debut record, Oracular Spectacular, was produced by Flaming Lips’ producer Dave Fridmann. It’s synthy and poppy but still quite elaborate and indie… A real feast for the senses!
NME said: “For all its musical philandering, unbridled excess and shrouds of irony, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a record with more musical depth and warmth all year than this one”.
