To celebrate the release of her new album Hairless Toys, out today on Play It Again Sam, Roisin Murphy has shared the album in full on KCRW.com, LA’s legendary tastemaker radio station. Murphy has also shared some incredible remixes of lead track ‘Exploitation’ with DJ Sneak, Alan Fitzpatrick, Falco Benz and GotSome amongst others all offering their unique take on this stand-out track.

Tipping its hat to the dark disco of Casablanca Records, an urgent shuffle of staccato synths, organ and guitar, “Exploitation“?says Roisin “..is about sex. Dangerous fun.” Watch the video here.

Her first album in 8 years, Hairless Toys is a career-defining tour de force. Sonically adventurous with peerless production from long time collaborator Eddie Stevens,Hairless Toys embraces a broad palette of genres yet is consistently engaging and thrilling throughout.

Beginning with ‘Gone Fishing’ that chimes like the bells of a buoy bullied by tide, everything hanging from a two-note octave. The lyric written after watching Jennie Livingston`s Paris Is Burning, a study of race, class, gender and sexuality in America

Elsewhere “Evil Eyes,” “Exploitation” and “House of Glass” provide the extended shake-outs essential to any of Roisin’s albums, while “Exile” and “Unputdownable” hide huge country soul hooks amidst their inventive structures.
