Röyksopp & Robyn – “Do It Again” & “Every Little Thing”

Next month, Robyn and Röyksopp will release their collaborative EP Do It Again in support of their upcoming European and North American tour. So far we’ve only heard a short preview but two of the songs have already surfaced. “Every Little Thing” sounds like a drawn out ‘N Sync song (in the best way possible)… More »

Preview Röyksopp & Robyn’s “Monument” From Do It Again EP

It’s been a long goddam time since we’ve heard any proper new music from Robyn. The Swedish pop queen guests on other people’s songs pretty frequently, but she hasn’t released anything of her own since the Body Talk trilogy in 2010. That’s about to change, sort of. Robyn and her friends in the Norwegian productio… More »

Röyksopp – “Something In My Heart” (Feat. Jamie Irrepressible) (Stereogum Premiere)

Röyksopp are often at their best when supporting a vocalist, and “Something In My Heart” is further evidence of that. Jamie McDermott, of orchestral pop group the Irrepressibles, is singing here, bringing a heartfelt and human core to the duo’s icy music. The three met initially when Röyksopp remixed the Irrepressibles track “In This Shirt,”… More »

Röyksopp – “Daddy’s Groove”

The most recent release in the artist-curated comp series Late Night Tales comes from Norwegian electronic music duo Röyksopp, who precede their set of crate-dug tracks with one of their own: the mellow and downtempo “Daddy’s Groove.” It is electronic music as warm glass of milk, a pillowy and comforting thing that might suit your… More »

Watch Röyksopp & Susanne Sundfør Cover Depeche Mode, Debut “Running To The Sea” On Norwegian TV

On a recent episode of the Norwegian TV show Lydverket, Röyksopp, the superstar electronic duo who call Norway home, teamed with vocalist Susanne Sundfør and a crew of mechanistic drummer-boys to play a couple of songs. Together, they covered “Ice Machine,” a 1981 Depeche Mode B-side, and they also debuted a heartsick new track called… More »

Röyksopp – “Shores Of Easy”

The Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp must’ve gotten out of bed in a generous mood this morning. On their website, they’ve just posted 25 minutes of brand-new free music. First off, they’ve given us their own 14-minute blissed-out instrumental piece “Shores Of Easy,” which is pretty enough to keep you zoning out until you get out… More »

New Indie Rock Christmas Songs For 2010

Every blog does a Christmas mix, so here’s ours, with a small twist: All of these tracks are new for this year Xmas songs, not the classics or Sufjan leftovers. I’ve also included streams for charity singles, Christmas-related music videos, and other new holiday bits (with links, where applicable, to download the rest of the… More »

The 10 Best Videos Of The Week

This week’s clips from Arcade Fire, Rokysopp, Simian Mobile Disco, No Joy, and White Lies show off what’s possible when your videos don’t have to fit particular television formats and time limits. The suburban dystopias in Rokysopp’s and Arcade Fire’s extended videos are a little long and a little much for TV, especially with the… More »

Röyksopp – “Hus Nr. 9″

With Junior the Röyksopp dudes (here pictured with a green banana nosed guy, you are welcome) made some sweet music with Swedish sirens Lykke Li, and Fever Ray, and Robyn, and continued that collab by fluffing pillows for Sweden’s dancehall queen with the sultry electro escapism of Body Talk Pt. 1’s “None Of Dem.” And… More »

Robyn – “None Of Dem” (Feat. Röyksopp)

Robyn’s Body Talk PT 1 will be here in June, and the bits that have leaked so far (“Fembot,” “Dance Hall Queen,”) have only make us more eager to hear the rest. “None Of Dem” is the collaboration with Röyksopp that we heard a snippet from. It’s a simmering track full of subtle (and not-so-subtle)… More »

Salem Salem Imposters Remix Röyksopp (Feat. Fever Ray)

It’s not surprising to hear that shadowy, electro-inclined outfit Salem chose the Fever Ray track from Röyksopp’s Junior LP for their remixing purposes; the Michigan/Chicago/New York trio bury their tunes in dark murk while there’s something pristine and laser-like about Fever Ray’s sharpest moments, but they share with Karin a fascination for the mysterious and… More »

New Röyksopp (Feat Fever Ray) Video – “This Must Be It”

Röyksopp’s futuristic “The Girl & The Robot” video starred a lonesome stay-at-home Robyn longing for her electro-mechanical man. “This Must Be It” includes the voice of Karin Dreijer Andersson, but instead of Fever Ray, the Filip and Andreas Nilsson-directed video for the Junior standout focuses on folks in loincloths and Runar (who?), a motorcycling drummer… More »

New Röyksopp (Feat. Robyn) Video – “The Girl & The Robot”

As those production stills suggested, the Michael Baldwin-directed video for oft performedThe Girl & The Robot” offers a very literal interpretation of the track. Basically, we find poor lonesome Robyn home alone in her best dress, cocktail in hand, while her orange robot husband stays too late at the office. It’s the first Röykso… More »

New Rökysopp – “The Girl And The Robot (Kris Menace Re-Interpretation)”

Röyksopp have rightly identified their Robyn collab “The Girl And The Robot” as the flagship piece of their junior LP Junior, making it an early listen and the focus of their first television appearance in seven years. It features Robyn and so it deserves a video, which is forthcoming. From the look of these advance… More »

Röyksopp’s First TV Appearance in Seven Years Involves Robyn And “The Girl And The Robot”

It seems the Norwegian duo have been pretty video camera shy since their support tour of Melody A.M., so it makes sense that they broke their live TV abstinence on the track that Robyn guests on. She has a way of holding attention. (Lykke Li would have been a good choice too.) Röyksopp brought JuniorMore »

Robyn Joins Röyksopp Onstage In London

The Swede reprised her studio turn for Junior’s “The Girl And The Robot” at London’s Royal Festival Hall. We’re told Karin Dreijer Andersson, who assisted Röyksopp on a number of songs and opened the night with a Fever Ray set, provided backing vocals, but we can’t spot her in this video. Instead, watch Robyn hopMore »
