Hard Candy Music Raves about 'Mirrors'

I think its high time that we posted about Natalia Kills. Her first official single Mirrors was just released this week on Itunes! It reminds me a lot of one of her labelmate Lady Gaga’s tracks (thanks to production by Akon and Cherry Cherry Boom Boom) However, because of the brilliance of this track and the fact that there is something very intriguing about this dark and twisty chick, I’m willing to overlook that haha.



I guarantee you a couple plays of this and you’ll be…

PopWrap Interviews Robyn on Body Talk Albums

Before her two night set in NYC, PopWrap sat down with the blonde banged genius to discuss her current world takeover, her favorite American artist (M.I.A) and her hardcore hustle of releasing three “Body Talk” albums in six months. Oh and it’s Robyn on a toilet ... in her dressing room ... so, ya know, that's a bonus.

Rolling Stone Reviews Die Antwoords EP '5'

A group of self-proclaimed "zef" (i.e., white trash) South Africans who rap in English and Afrikaans over rave-style beats? Turns out, that's just what hip-hop needed. Die Antwoord's "Enter the Ninja" video went viral in February, introducing the world to Ninja, the group's glowering lead MC, and Yo-Landi Vi$$er, a pixieish sidekick with the world's weirdest mullet. On this EP, Ninja's staccato flow kills even when you only understand every fourth word. Boasting, dissing and smoking dope,…

Introduction to Die Antwoord from TheSun.co.uk

"Ninja credits Hi-Tek - who "owns a PC computer" - with pioneering their unique 'Zef Rap-Rave' sound, while the MC himself is responsible for the cutting lyrics about life in the ghetto.



Words like "open your mind as quick as a fart" give you an idea of the gritty turmoil inside his tortured mind.



Ninja and Yo-Landi demonstrate an aptitude for dancing in their YouTube videos, with the MC unveiling a fondness for wiggling his package around during close-up…

Tokio Hotel America Interviews Martin Kierszenbaum of Cherrytree Records

"Cherrytree’s online activity involves not only output but also input. We communicate our initiatives to our audience but we also gather information from them about how they want to consume music. We then apply this information (eg. Robyn releasing 3 shorter albums within a shorter period of time). The key for us is to be close to our audience so we can super-serve them. That’s our aim."…

NYPost's Exclusive Look Inside Natalia Kills Upcoming Album 'Perfectionist'

"With a sound similar to Lady GaGa, but far enough away so she's not perceived as a true carbon copy, this British born, half Jamaican, half Uruguayan vixen has hit the audio A-list nail on the head. Her sound is raw and vicious, her vocals are gritty and her layered stylings are virginal compared to GaGa’s — which is exactly what draws me to her."

Robyn, Kelis' "All Hearts" tour captures all eyes, ears at the Trocadero

Kelis and Robyn may have been billed as co-headliners for Tuesday night's show at the Trocadero, but it was in words only.



In a multiracial crowd of men and women in their 20s and 30s, Robyn was the clear favorite.



Kelis took the stage first. The 30-year-old singer hit pop culture with her infectious and slightly risque "Milkshake" back in 2003, but has since transformed herself from a Neptunes-produced rap/hip-hop/neo-soul star into a club diva.



She came on… Continue

Robyn at New York's Webster Hall - Best show of the year?

As one Mr. Jacobim Mugatu might say: “That damn Sweden, it’s so hot right now.” And it’s true; I’m sure we could talk about umlauts and fanged Nordic dreamboats and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo all day long.



But I am here to tell you about The Girl With The Spandex Banana Pants—the tiny, platinum-quiffed blond who last night swept New York City’s Webster Hall into a frenzy so wild that it threatened to collapse the floors of that historic venue and send the sold-out crowd straight… Continue

AVClub.com Interview Robyn

Lately, some critics have taken to referring to Robyn as Sweden’s answer to Lady Gaga, which would be more of a compliment if not for the fact that Robin Miriam Carlsson’s career stretches back three times the length of Stefani Germanotta’s. Then again, it depends which Robyn you’re talking about. The teen-pop sensation who scored an international hit with “Show Me Love” back in the mid-’90s? Or the sharp-tongued, shape-shifting electronic artist who liberated herself from the music industry… Continue

Washington Post Reviews Robyn and Kelis' "All Hearts Tour" at 9:30 Club

If Kelis and Robyn aren't already best friends, they should be. Even though the dance-pop divas came of age on opposite sides of the Atlantic - one in New York, the other in Sweden - they have a lot of things in common.



For instance, both showed up to their sold-out co-headlining gig at the 9:30 Club on Monday night armed with heavy percussion, booming dance beats, and gut-rattling bass. And both came toting a strong, thoroughly female pop-sensibility - big emotional hooks infused… Continue
