Moloko – Things to Make and Do (Limited Edition Numbered Pink Vinyl 2LP)
Things to Make and Do is the third album by the electronic/dance duo Moloko, released in the UK by Echo Records in 2000. It was a sonic departure for Moloko, with tracks less reliant on electronics and more on live musicians. In addition to the change in musical styles, the album featured new vocal technique, from the lead singer Róisín Murphy. At time of release, Murphy summed up the previous style of her lyrics, saying, “I was nineteen when I made Tight Sweater, and I knew I was pretending, but if I tried not to, I’d still be pretending. Now, I know myself better,” and her lyrics on this album are described as, “Roisin’s most direct and emotionally honest lyrics.
