Euro-pop extraordinaire Robyn will be performing a free set on July 23rd at Amoeba Records in Hollywood. The show starts at 7 pm but trust me when I tell you to get there a few hours in advance since big acts like this draw a large crowd and the place hits capacity quick! Robyn’s club-worthy pop songs have been a staple in my ipod for quite some time now, but I realize that this is one of those “you either love her or hate her” artists as I’ve come to find out with friends. She has recently released a new album Body Talk Pt.1 and has plans to release 2 more albums by the end of this year. This chick is seriously making me look like a procrastinating loser! So far the tracks from Body Talk Pt.1 are more electro than her previous self-titled album, which the exception of the single “Dancing On My Own” which could have easily fit on the last. My personal favorite from Body Talk Pt. 1 is “Fembot” and does what most Robyn songs do best: it’s easy to dance to but if sung acoustic the true raw emotions of the lyrics come out. Check out the below acoustic set of “Dancing On My Own” and look out for Body Talk Pt.2 dropping in the U.K on September 6th. Konichiwa Bitches.

LISTEN: MIA’s new album /\/\/\Y/\ (a.k.a. MAYA)

If you haven’t already (illegally) downloaded the new album by Paper Planes electro-artist M.I.A., then you can head on over to her seizure-inducing MySpace page to stream the entire new album. Now, I’ve been a huge M.I.A. fan since long before hip-hop stole her “Swagga Like Us” line (yes, she existed before Paper Planes) but I’m still not completely sold on this new album. A few factors may be the cause:

(a) she procreated for the first time between the last album and this, enter Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman,

(b) she got engaged to Benjamin Bronfman (ex-singer for the band The Exit, and son of Warner Music Group’s CEO),

and (c) got semi-signed by pop-heavy Interscope Records, shared by artists like Lady Gaga, Eminem, and Black Eyed Peas.

Regardless, take a listen to the album and let us know your thoughts! (My fave tracks are XXXO, It Takes A Muscle, Born Free, and Space.)
