Robyn – Dancing On My Own (Stockholm, Aug 27, 2010)

28 08 2010

I have been meaning to post this song since it was released this spring. Well, I have been meaning to post a lot of songs. Anyway, yesterday Robyn performed live here in Stockholm. She did a great show, as did Belle and Sebastian earlier in the evening. Yeah, there is a pop festival in town this weekend. Tonight: Hot Chip, Neon Indian, Hurts, and The Magic Numbers.

Four years after releasing her last album, this year Robyn is releasing no less than three different albums. This song is from the first one, Body Talk Pt.1. The second 2010 release date is in September, and the third one in December. Probably, I will only tell you this once.


Live long and KNIFE IT, 1 M0Re T1ME

Yeah, I can’t stop listening and searching for more remixes, sorry.  So,  in my midst of being enamoured as Joseph put it so eloquently, I found this fine piece of  live action cut of from their Gothenburg show which, if you have the chance to get DEEP CUTS, please do. One of the very first Knife albums, it transcends time and puts you in the drivers seat of otherworldly synths, tom-tom beats and of course Karin’s voice either pitch-bent or on it’s own, it’s still lovely.

Here’s a tasty morsel

for your salivationals

The Knife – Heartbeats (Live in Gothenburg)

Karin Dreijer Andersson

2 02 2010

Karin Dreijer Andersson is the Swedish singer from The Knife, who not too long ago came out with a solo project album under the name Fever Ray. It’s spectacular. Jon is enamored. She actually shows up on some songs by Royksopp (albums: Junior, The Understanding).

She’s also a character, as visible in the clip below of her accepting a music award for best dance act in Sweden. She and her brother of The Knife have a habit of not showing their faces in public, in response to the media hyperfocus on fashion and looks over musical content. They believe the appearance of an artist can change a consumer’s relationship with the music; they’re seeking a connection based on music and art, unmediated by appearance.

By the way, she’s hot.

Also, if you want mp3s of just about anything, e.g. Fever Ray remixes, Jon beseeches thee to undertake an exploration of the technological amenities available via the site of web at

It’s a website that automatically converts youtube videos’ audio to mp3 for download.

And lastly, before posting the links, it’s worth noting there are 8,183,100,231,102 remixes of Fever Ray out there. These are three we like. But there’s plenty more to explore.
