shunt  said about 6 years ago  or at  1:19PM on Wednesday, October 31 2007 in music

the swedish electro pop / schmaltz whiz! she's been discussed on here before but now she has her very own thread for people to tell me when the tour with sneaky soundshitdom is announced please thankyou. and also maybe drool about how genius the new record is

wikipedia / myspace


anonymous  said about 6 years ago:

well, the 3 year old record with 2 new tracks marketed as a new record.

but yeah, its a good one :)


ChrisBrimstone  said about 6 years ago:

The utter worst of what passes for 'indie' and 'pop' right now.


anonymous  said about 6 years ago:

have you heard the album chris, or just the singles?

theres great pop songs there once you get past cobrastyle and konichawa bitches.

as a matter of fact, i prefer them over the singles.


ChrisBrimstone  said about 6 years ago:

nah... i've just been utterly annoyed by konichawa bitches. some of the other stuff on her myspace is pretty damn cool but that one track is just so ugly


shunt  said about 6 years ago:

hahah i only heard the whole thing this week

she's still releasing singles off it!


anok  said about 6 years ago:

i used to listen to 'be mine' on repeat. will czech the newy.


shunt  said about 6 years ago:

chris you do realize you can just plain old ''not like something'' without it becoming the most horrid abomination mankind has ever witnessed that will surely bring about the end of civilization (or at least good natured indie pop) as we know it, right?

Yeah, but this is beyond that - the entire tone of the song - the lyrics - the image - everything about Robyn is designed to be offputting and alientating, and its embrace by the indie community is a sign of ugliness

though i kinda see how she's trying to ape Andy Warhol


mrslooch  said about 6 years ago:

more talk on robyn in this thread


shunt  said about 6 years ago:

check out ''with every heartbeat'' then anok. similar type of thing

she comes across as one hellishly jealous bitter lady oftentimes. hahahaa

is this the same robyn who writes fun silly dancy pop songs?

chill the fuck out, brimstone.


shunt  said about 6 years ago:

wow, and here's me thinking it was just a fun silly pop song


shunt  said about 6 years ago:

mmmm schnapps!


mrslooch  said about 6 years ago:

isn't she taking the piss? in the interview with her on triple j last month, she said her and her songwriting partner were trying to come up with as many outrageous statements in the hip-hop I'm-the-best-you-all-suck style as they could


anonymous  said about 6 years ago:

yeah i found the record through be mine, and got a copy a while back.

should probably still buy one now its out locally.


de.foxus  said about 6 years ago:

hahaha!

brillliant, shunt.


anonymous  said about 6 years ago:

stolen from my other post on the other thread..

1997 robyn on youtube

another 1997 robyn on youtube!


Inactivist  said about 6 years ago:

Yup, mrslooch. Apparently she was listening to Run DMC and it got her thinking about rap boast tracks so she wrote the lyrics for an extra dumb one. Gotta love the Wu-Tang reference in the title.


shunt  said about 6 years ago:

the ending of that song still makes me LOL every time


mrslooch  said about 6 years ago:

rap boast, that's the one nacty

Thanks scuz!


mrmagoo  said about 1 year ago:

Call Your Girlfriend on SNL was pretty great

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fQaKtfoEOU

i know it's heavy on backing track and all, but it's still an amazing performance!


PaulsGrandfather  said about 1 year ago:

Yeah, I watched that too. Her voice doesn't seem as strong but I get the impression it's just because she can't stay still! Someone needs to have a quiet word with her about her outfit though.


anok  said about 1 year ago:

god she's awesome.

I have long had no idea why people are cracking a fat over robyn


anonymous  said about 1 year ago:

probably won't be as good as that show at roxanne parlour many moons ago.

She's the Swedish Catcall.


CaptainHowdy  said about 1 year ago:

does anyone have any thoughts on marina? (she has a thread but it's quite brief and dead, didn't want to resurrect for nothing.)


Kit  said about 1 year ago:

I've seen her four times and she's killed it every one. they were all several to many moons ago, but she's got the entire Body Talk series of material to play for us now.

(Okay, probably not including the Snoop duet.)


anok  said about 1 year ago:

c'mon. catcall ain't got nothin on this lady. robyn is a star.


CaptainHowdy  said about 1 year ago:

(Okay, probably not including the Snoop duet.)

she does a modified version of that song live.


team ham sandwich  said about 1 year ago:

You mean that one where she mimed the whole set?


Kit  said about 1 year ago:

She had two drummers, Kleerup on keys and guitar, and one microphone. Just because everything not played by those four was on tracks doesn't make all the actual singing and playing irrelevant.


anok  said about 1 year ago:

ppl just hate backing tracks. especially if they feature vox. even if they're backing vocals.

god i wish i'd seen her live.


TagoMago  said about 1 year ago:

i remember going to that abysmal v-festival in melbourne in 2008, mainly to see smashing pumpkins and air. robyn and duran duran ended up being the highlight. 'with every heart beat' live is a true lighters in the air moment. pissed i missed roisin murphy and jesus + mary chain though. not a bad lineup that year really.


anok  said about 1 year ago:

Did glass candy+ radio dept. come that year too?


TagoMago  said about 1 year ago:

no idea who the hell they are. i just remember the bands i saw and the pumpkins being particularly awful so i left early and got drunk at spencer street station.

robyn looks like a female orc, albiet a sort of sexy one.

I am cracking a major fat over Robyn. I'm way late to this party but I fucking LOVE HER.


mud  said 1 day ago:

She's doing an EP/tour with Royksopp. (Splendour gap in tour schedule?)

Snippet of new song 'Monument' is pretty mega.
