Here in the states weâre largely stuck with brain-dead pop by prefabricated starlets (turned-mental-cases) like Britney Spears. Sweden has Robyn, a singer/songwriter who turns out gems such as âBe Mine!â A disco dance number thatâs also smart and strikingly emotive, it was the first single off her 2005 self-titled album. The song finds Robyn evocatively recalling a failed relationship over staccato synth beats and icy strings. A video for the single came out in â05 and then a second one, posted here, was issued late last year. Robynâs album is finally being readied for a U.S. release in the near future, reports Pitchfork.
