It’s been five long years since Robyn released her three part epic Body Talk, and we’ve all been waiting to see what she’d do next. Sure, she released that mini-album Do It Again with Royksopp last year, but that really was more their thing than hers. So we’ve got some good news and bad news.

Good news, she’s back!

‘Love Is Free’ was the first single from her new project, also titled Love Is Free. Bad news: it’s another mini-album, and another co-release, this time with La Bagatelle Magique. However, even a little bit of Robyn is better than no Robyn at all, and...

Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique: Love Is Free

7.3Overall Score

Yayınlanma: 7 Ağustos 2015 | Interscope

Robyn, 2000’li yılların en üretken isimlerinden biri. Durmaksızın devam ettiği iş birlikleri, projeleri ve dans pistini ele geçirmiş hali ile ben bu durumdan hiç de şikayetçi değilim. Robyn’in vizyonu elektronik müzik için oldukça heyecan uyandırıcı.

Projeden projeye koşan sanatçının haliyle de son zamanlarda yoğun bir temposu vardı. Body Talk serisinin ardından, 2014 yılında Röyksopp ile birlikte Do It adını verdikleri bir EP yayınladı. Bu mini albüm, süregelen Robyn ve Röyksopp iş birliğinin son meyvesiydi. İsveçli ikili daha önce de “The Girl and the Robot” için mikrofonu Robyn’e vermişti. Mini albümde...

Why you should listen: Robyn, keyboardist Markus Jägerstedt and DJ Christian Falk recorded this collection of thumping, pop-house tracks before Falk suddenly died of cancer in 2014, aged 52. The album retains its celebratory spark, even though it’s been released under difficult circumstances.

It might not be for you if … You’ve never been one for Robyn’s sugary-sweet voice and perennially upbeat instrumentation.

What we said: “There’s an irrepressible euphoria to the music throughout, best evidenced by house-influenced, floor-filling recent single Love Is Free”, wrote Phil Mongredien, in the Observer.

Score: 4/5

Why you should listen: This LA four-piece sound like what may...

When Robyn’s fourth album was released In the summer of 2007 it had been almost ten years since she had been in the charts in the UK. This album was the first release on her own record label, the creation of which was spurred by her desire for increased creative freedom. When it finally got a UK release (two years after it came out in Sweden), ‘With Every Heartbeat’ had been added to the tracklisting. The song was recorded with Swedish producer Kleerup.

I still think of ‘With Every Heartbeat’ as a shock number one, because it happened just after the...

We’ve got a veritable treasure trove of tracks from Flavorwire favorites this week — Robyn, Beck, and the Hold Steady’s Craig Finn — plus a few more gems from lesser-known folks.

Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique — “Love Is Free” feat. Maluca

BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac just gave Robyn her esteemed honor of “hottest record in the world” — and for good reason. The Song of the Summer search is over now: Robyn’s new La Bagatelle Magique project has given us just that with the euphoric club hit “Love Is Free.” This is...

Robyn Carlsson and bandmate Markus Jägerstedt are in their Stockholm studio, final-mixing the closest thing to a new Robyn album since 2010.

It’s been a little over a year since Do It Again, the pop outlaw’s five-track EP with Bergen duo Röyksopp, and a little under five since its icon-making predecessor, the ambitious three-part LP Body Talk. Now, with help from Markus and the late Christian Falk, the singer has launched a clubland project influenced by everything from Prefab Sprout and Suicide to Turkish folk, Arthur Russell and, most evidently, 90s house, her longstanding obsession. Before the international summer...

Approaching my tenth Robyn Hitchcock gig in six years. I can’t escape a sort of feeling of the evangelical when I declare that I am so glad I have found him! He is the great soothing, soothsayer.

Seeing Robyn play just an acoustic guitar, singing gently, in north London’s grandest church for gigs is just the right tonic from the font. A balcony seat overlooking proceedings and the sinking of light into twilight into dark night, with ruby red and dark blue glass pane windows a-glint is divine.

But, ever obtuse, here comes ‘The Cheese Alarm’ to celebrate twilight. Now it’s...

Robyn vuelve, de nuevo acompañada

Aunque su vuelta el pasado año junto a Röyksopp fue un buen aperitivo, los fans de Robyn esperaban material de ella en solitario y sobre todo de manera más amplia. Pues sobre cantidad no se sabe mucho, pero lo que si se sabe es que no vendrá sola. Ha formado un grupo con los productores Markus Jägersted y Christian Falk, con los que ya trabajó en el pasado. Lo curioso es que Falk murió hace casi un año, así que deben de llevar un tiempo trabajando en el asunto si había suficiente material de este para aprovechar.

La banda se llama La Bagatelle...

The lovely and talented Blake Lively has superpowered hair, a darling new baby girl with husband Ryan Reynolds, and a much-anticipated new movie co-starring newcomers Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford (we kid, we kid) hitting theaters next Friday — it’s safe to say things are going well for Gossip Girl  and Traveling Pants alum.

If that wasn’t enough to make us admit to just a twinge of friendly jealousy, this certainly would be: The blonde beauty, who recently opened up to Allure about what it’s like to be a female in Hollywood today, appears to have just the most charming, genuine and downright enviable relationship with her sister,...

Kings veteran defenseman Robyn Regehr announced his retirement Saturday after Los Angeles defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-1 to finish the season.

When Regehr, who will turn 35 on April 19 and was set to be an unrestricted free agent, was asked if he would be back next season, he said, "I'm probably not going to play again."

Goodbye until September for the Kings and farewell to the NHL for defenseman Robyn Regehr.

It was a day of bittersweet partings for the Kings and their fans and for Regehr and his 15-season NHL career. The team's regular-season finale was a 4-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday afternoon at Staples Center. The Kings are out of the playoffs for the first time since 2009.

Regehr punched the clock in his true-professional fashion — registering three hits and finishing a plus-one — and said in the dressing room afterward that he has probably played his last professional game.
