The aptly named Do You Like My Tight Sweater? slinks and bounces on a funky backbone of fat bass-lines and innovative beats that support singer Roisin Murphy's sly, theatrical vocals and lyrics. Part cat-woman, part droid, her singing ranges from a knowing purr to an androgynous growl and creates characters like party weirdos, dominatrixes, killer bunnies, and ghosts. As dramatic as her vocals are, however, Murphy is an antidiva; her musical surroundings equal her singing in importance.
The other half of Do You Like My Tight Sweater?'s individuality comes from Mark Brydon's arrangements, which combine fluid tempos, sudden breakbeats, witty sound effects, and unearthly keyboards in sci-fi grooves that appeal to the brain and body.
