I saw Röyksopp in concert again this week past week – what an incredible show! Their performance reminded me of my love for today’s track and was my inspiration for the post. Bonus: it features Robyn (yes I’m obsessed). She portrays a lonely girl in love with a workaholic. Röyksopp’s signature rolling synth is ever-present and provides an excellent backdrop to Robyn’s pained vocals. The sample I’ve chosen picks up at a very interesting point in the song. On one side you have Robyn voicing her concerns overlayed with the Robot being dismissive. The Robot fades away and we’re left with Robyn, alone. The song soon winds down with another one of Röyksopp’s strong suits, integrating strings into the electronics. This is easily one of my favorite dance songs and was an inevitable feature here. Thanks for the fantastic show guys!

A bit late today, but really it’s never too late for anything Robyn related. With lyrics like “Baby barbie on barbiturates” and “Mommy called on the exorcist” you can’t go wrong! I really love the simplicity of this song. It’s basic pop at it’s best. Teddybear’s do a great job with the production, and Robyn adds her touch with the tongue-twisting lyrics. It’s hard to sit still for this one – just take Robyn’s lead and “shake your bone maker”
