Amoeba Review

06/23/2014

On their booty-bumpin’ collaboration “The Girl and the Robot,” from Royksopp’s excellent Junior album, Robyn claimed she was in love with a robot over a backdrop that made you anxious as much as it made you want to party. On their album-length collaboration, Norwegian duo Royksopp and Swede singer Robyn are tapping into the post-millennial technodread side of that equation, though Do It Again is plenty fun at the same time. It sounds like the girl and the robot are making love on “Sayit,” in which Robyn and a Commodore 64-voiced robotic voice trade come-ons over digital throb. “Monument” finds the collaborators similarly in bedroom mode, simmering over nearly 10 minutes with Art of Noise-style New Age synth and sultry sax, though Robyn, for her part, is more esoteric, singing weird lines like “make a cast of my body.” At only five, long songs, Do It Again is headier than we may have expected this collaboration to be. But the title track is an absolute banger, with Robyn’s sad yet immediately grabbing melodies and Rokysopp’s insistent pulse—it’s the kind of thing that should be all over the radio, in a perfect world. Indeed, this extended five-song EP finds Rokysopp and Robyn engaging in a fruitful set of collaborations that could continue forevermore as far as we’re concerned.
