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

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

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

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

La Roux has struck British gold, if you will, in the musical sense. This summer, after tirelessly promoting their album for a year and a half, the dance-pop duo has a bonafide American hit with "Bulletproof," an empowering female anthem that stands out… Continue

When last we saw the shades-wearing electro-rappers of L.A.’s Far East Movement, they were sipping sizzurp and name-checking champagne. Now it’s Monday morning, and we’ve got the perfect hangover cure: the quartet, currently opening for pop fembot Robyn on tour, enlisted the crowd-pleasing Swedish star… Continue

"There really wasn't much else for Robyn to do midway through her spirited, sweaty and downright sexy show on Wednesday (July 28) night at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York, so she decided to pull on a beret and eat a banana."Check out the full review below or over on MTV.com

Vulture directed your attention to the video for “Hang With Me” — the lead single off Robyn’s Body Talk Pt. 2 and a reworked version of the acoustic song of the same name from Body Talk Pt. 1 — yesterday , meaning by now you may have had a full day to appreciate the video. Pretty great, right? It gets immediate points for being a tour-life montage, a reliable approach that used to be omnipresent in the days when MTV featured a few less pregnant teenagers, but one that has now faded away.… Continue

review of the Los Angeles All Hearts Tour Concert below:
All that was missing from Robyn's set Friday at the opening night of the "All Hearts" tour at Los Angeles' Music Box theater was a giant disco ball.
Everything else was in place: footloose fans who arrived early for Englishman Dan Black's good-humored set and stayed in motion during Far East Movement's DJ stylings;… Continue

A platinum-blond proponent of Scandinavian efficiency, the Swedish electro-pop singer Robyn wasted no time getting to her point Friday night at the Henry Fonda Music Box Theater in Hollywood. “I’ve got some news for you,” she sang less than a minute into her hour-long set, “Fembots have feelings too.”
Friday’s sold-out concert kicked off a joint U.S. tour by Robyn and Kelis, the adventurous R&B star best known for her 2003 hit “Milkshake.” Both women have new albums to promote,… Continue
