“be in love. i sound like joan collins, but you become quite beautiful when you’re in love.”

+++ roisin murphy +++

with the production of mastermind matthew herbert, the lead singer of the british duo moloko has created her debut album *ruby blue* with sultry submission and vivacious soulful energy. respectively incorporating different lil funk sounds and sedative otherworldly beats pulsating in numerous patterns repetitively, roisin murphy’s smoky vocals are complimented revealing another twisted and experimental side of herself completely.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    RUBY BLUE – Without Question, one of the top albums of 2005.

    Check MOLOKO while you’re in the mood. A seriously… SERIOUSLY under-rated band. Their live set DVD – 11,000 CLICKS – is stunning.
