Dancehall Dream - The New Yorker reviews Body Talk Pt. 1

Robyn’s new album, “Body Talk Pt. 1,” provides eight handsomely formed, near-perfect pop songs that are embedded with a casual kind of feminism. Robyn, a small, delicate-looking thirty-one-year-old Swede, is remarkably adept at producing pleasurable, accessible pop that, like some kind of graphite alloy, is light but strong, able to carry humor and emotional weight. Her occasional lyrical references to empowerment and independence are probably exactly what feminism was supposed to look like by 2010: she takes her autonomy for granted, and her strength comes from being a consistent and calm oddball. The politics are not in the commentary as much as in the variety of her music and presentation. If she wants to dress up like an astronaut or paint her face three colors and make robotic dancehall music, she will.
