Robyn - Call Your Girlfriend

"It's time you had the talk"

I realize I'm a little behind the blogosphere on this, but there's been so much good music recently that I couldn't quite get to writing about these new Robyn songs until now. She remains the most exciting thing in pop at the moment and the tracks that conclude her Body Talk project are further proof of that. She's just the perfect pop star for our times, made even more perfect by the fact that she writes her own stuff. A Robyn song is instantly recognizable for its cleverness, powerful sense of melody and innovation. She's a leader in every sense of the word. The four new tracks are uniformly awesome, but this one just edges out the others as my favorite. The vocals are set to soaring and assisted by a moody dance beat that melds pop and electro in a perfect marriage. And that dramatic refrain, which intensifies each time it comes back, is one of the best moments of the entire project. Rarely has a song sung from the perspective of a mistress sounded so convincing. It's been an exciting year to be a Robyn fan.
