Ryan McPhun’s recommendation: “I’m currently really excited about the new Robyn ep/album. The two singles (“Dancing On My Own”, and “Fembot”) are incredible and I can’t stop listening to them.”

New to Robyn? Ryan suggests you start here: “The new album is called Body Talk Pt 1. The two tracks above are what I’d recommend. I guess most people would be familiar with her track “With Every Heartbeat” from a couple of years ago. I love that song too and was obsessed with it when I first heard it.”

Ryan McPhunAbout the guest author, Ryan McPhun: Sub Pop’s press release describes Ryan as “… the kind of voracious musical mind that cites as equal influences ‘80s New Jack Swing and modern Angolan kuduro, Fleetwood Mac and Britney Spears, Brazilian tropicalia and Argentinean cumbia.” Sounds challenging, but it actually goes down quite easy. Give the “Closet Astrologer” mp3 a listen below from the Ruby Suns latest release Fight Softly and be sure to check their MySpace page for full tour information.
