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 7 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 7 years ago:

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


anonymous  said about 7 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 7 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 7 years ago:

hahah i only heard the whole thing this week

she's still releasing singles off it!


anok  said about 7 years ago:

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


shunt  said about 7 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 7 years ago:

more talk on robyn in this thread


shunt  said about 7 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 7 years ago:

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


shunt  said about 7 years ago:

mmmm schnapps!


mrslooch  said about 7 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 7 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 7 years ago:

hahaha!

brillliant, shunt.


anonymous  said about 7 years ago:

stolen from my other post on the other thread..

1997 robyn on youtube

another 1997 robyn on youtube!


Inactivist  said about 7 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 7 years ago:

the ending of that song still makes me LOL every time


mrslooch  said about 7 years ago:

rap boast, that's the one nacty

mrmagoo  said about 1 month ago:

fuck the Palais!


team ham sandwich  said about 1 month ago:

Seriously, why is this at the fucking palais? A sit down venue is going to suck!


team ham sandwich  said about 1 month ago:

Presale is fucked too. Tickets supposed to be on sale at 10am and now it just says 'coming soon'.


CaptainHowdy  said about 1 month ago:

i can't buy manage to buy tickets either. boo.


anok  said about 1 month ago:

is this working yet?


team ham sandwich  said about 1 month ago:

Nup, clusterfuck of the highest order.


anok  said about 1 month ago:

ticketmaster says their tix are weds for members and fri for the rest.

palais shmalais:~(


team ham sandwich  said about 1 month ago:

We are currently awaiting confirmation from artist management before going on sale, and will have further details about these dates shortly.

Please keep checking back on the artist website for updates!


mrmagoo  said about 1 month ago:

she might not like the Palais as well!


anok  said about 1 month ago:

wonder if we should be encouraged by that. it seems unfathomable that the most dancable pop act of ever would play a seated venue.


CaptainHowdy  said about 1 month ago:

palais website, ticketmaster and livenation.com.au all say:

Due to unforeseen developments in recent days, we’re unable to make tickets available for the advertised Robyn & Royksopp “Do It Again” tour as scheduled today. Further updates will be made available as soon as possible. Please standby.

livenation.com.au still says General Onsale From 7 Nov 2014 10:00 but that info is missing from ticketmaster site.


team ham sandwich  said about 1 month ago:

Fingers crossed for a change of venue. I don't know whether it will fortunate or unfortunate that its likely to be festy hall.


team ham sandwich  said about 1 month ago:

All reference to the shows has been removed from her facebook too.


mrmagoo  said about 1 month ago:

anywhere without seated please

just hope it's not gone all together!


anok  said about 1 month ago:

well this is the biggest mystery since raph not turning up on time for the teenage mothers' show on saturday night.


team ham sandwich  said about 1 month ago:

mrmagoo  said about 1 month ago:

yep no more Robyn, just Royskopp
