About Robyn in This Week’s Issue…

posted by on May 7 at 16:05 PM

Swedish pop darling Robyn, profiled here in this weeks’ Stranger has postponed her scheduled Seattle show in favor of playing the View. Pitchfork reports:

Alas, Robyn’s time with “The View” has forced her to push planned dates in Portland on May 13 at Berbati’s Pan and Seattle May 14 at Neumos back to August to accommodate the taping. That’s a bummer, Pac NW, but think about it this way: there’s another North American Robyn tour in the works, and it is definitely coming your way.

Maybe we’ll just publish a link to our archives for that one.

I cannot for the life of me understand the love for this gal. Stereogum, Pitchfork, etc., etc., ... everyone creams their jeans over her, but as far as I can see there is NOTHING special about her, her voice, her music, whatever. Blech.

In other news: Yo Grandy, can we get a post/poll/thread on Battles? I missed the boat on these guys last year and am just now listening to "Mirrored" and I have to say, I think it SUCKS. What does everyone else think? Now that the blog hype has died down, can we all agree there is nothing redeeming about this band?

Robyn's self-titled remains masterclass pop, but this is just embarrassing and a ridiculously bad move.

Then again, we've waited three years for her to show up here.

What's a little more.

Robyn - Be Mine = Best Pop song to imitate Kate Bush. She's great if only for Be Mine but there are many reasons to like this girl.

Battles do suck but the DJ Koze remix of Atlas justifies the bands existence.
