Röyksopp
The Inevitable End
Dog Triumph Records
Street: 11.07.14
Röyksopp = a less ethereal Björk + Robyn + Worlds-era Porter Robinson

One of Norway’s more popular electronic groups is back with their second release of the year, though this one is about twice as long as its predecessor, Do It Again, which features Robyn. The album combines synthesized, down-tempo electronic pop beats with ethereal female vocals, which makes for really cool pop tracks on songs like “Save Me,” and “Monument,” but gets a bit darker and more melancholy on tracks like “Rong.” The production on the album is really well done, with great attention to detail and use of various instruments on every track. It’s definitely one to check out if you’re looking to broaden your knowledge of good groups from around the world. –Julia Sachs
