First Impressions: About 'Last Night'...with Sam Sparro and Roisin Murphy

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

So this actually happened. There was a meeting of the sonic electro-soul minds, minds that go by the names Sam Sparro and Roisin Murphy, and they oh, just happened to record a song together called "Last Night". It happened months ago in the wake of Sparro's recording of his absolutely fabulous second album, Return To Paradise. Nobody really knew about it (or maybe it was just lil' ol' me) because it was scrapped from the project for asinine reasons unknown. Or probably because Paradise was already packed to the gills with awesomeness. Or possibly because who can handle Sparro and Murphy on one track alone? I'm surprised my laptop didn't blow up when playing "Last Night" for the first time, as the bass licks, splash of House, and Murphy's seductress coo make this a funky disposition of urgent listening order. Word on the blogs is that "Last Night" is to be added to a deluxe edition for Return To Paradise---so maybe it'll get a home after all...or maybe it'll be just lies, and another moment where the music gods dangle yet another carrot in front of me and promptly snatch it away.

Still, I cast a vote for Sparro and Murphy to record an album together...let's make this happen. You know, like right now
