Take Her Up to Monto is the fourth studio album by Irish singer Róisín Murphy, released in 2016 via Play It Again Sam. It was produced with long-time Murphy collaborator Eddie Stevens during the same five-week session period that resulted in her previous album, 2015's Hairless Toys. - Wiki

“What elevates Take Her Up to Monto—and all of Murphy’s records, frankly—is a fearless, restless spirit. Multi-part tracks like “Thoughts Wasted,” “Ten Miles High,” and “Nervous Sleep” toss the rulebook out the window as Murphy merges genres, sounds and feelings. “Thoughts Wasted” is perhaps the album’s highlight: Beginning with a echoey piano riff, the song starts off as a pop song before violins arrive for a startling minimalist bridge with countermelody that would be more expected on a Bang on a Can album. When Murphy’s voice re-emerges, it’s accompanied by a ghostly choir that signals that song's third act, a spoken word tour-de-force. Even though lyrics are relatively inscrutable, when Murphy delivers the line, “Humans are fucked,” it pierces.” - Pitchfork
