Adele is back, & with a vengeance. It's been a few years since her debut album "19," a smash hit. Since then she's grown into her own and has released her sophomore album:

The album is simply beautiful. Beginning with the lead single, "Rolling in the Deep," it follows her through heartache, break-ups, and harsh love. It has reached number 1 in 14 countries, and has yet to be released in the U.S. but there is no doubt it will make a huge splash. Get ready for the British invasion in the next few months with Adele, Ellie Goulding, and Tinie Tempah. And be sure to purchase "21" when it is released. Until then, enjoy a couple of my favorite tracks to wet your appetite.

Robyn has released Body Talk Pt2 yesterday.
It leaked at the beginning of August, and it's brought so much audible pleasure to my ears.
Not only that, it's climbing the iTunes charts (number 5 as we speak)
and, she's coming back to the U.S. this fall for a solo tour. 
Unfortunately I won't be in NYC to see her. 
I strongly recommend this album.
Eargasm for days!

… Conspiracies to engage your
mood and then indencent acts and events. Imma wind it grind it, imma have to say it again.
This week marked my last one in New York (post to come)
A while back, I saw Robyn was bringing her All Hearts tour to the city.
I bought my ticket, and was going by myself until I found out Jessie and VJ were going.
The tour consisted of Robyn co-headlining with Kelis
ft. opening acts Far East Movement and Dan Black.
I have to say, and I've seen many a shows, but Robyn KILLED it.
The energy in the room was so off the wall, you were dancing without even knowing.
Jessie and I grabbed a quick bite pre-show and missed Far East movement
(the concert began at 6)
But walked in right before Dan Black's set.

He had an odd stage presence, or rather one I wasn't expecting.
It was funky/fun/eclectic.
He tended to do a lot of hip thrusting too, which was unnecessary.

After Dan finished his set, it was time for Kelis to take the stage.
The venue went dark and some house music came on.
Bright lights flashed and out came Kelis in a silver James Brown looking wig,
and a Rainbow Brite looking spandex suit.
Despite the festival of colors, she began with a bang!
As soon as the first heavy bass of "Emancipate" hit-the crowded was bouncing up and down.
Haflway through her set, she announced how her 1-year old had a cold
and gave it to her. With that she said her hair was killing her....
So she took it off...and danced on!
As her set came to an end, it began sounding like one repetitive song,
all I wanted was for Robyn to take the stage.

After some time, and an untimely soundcheck for Robyn,
the lights dimmed and the wild romp began!!!
The crowd went into fandemonium when the pixie sized-Swede came to the stage.
She opened with Fembots, and played smash after smash
in order:
Cry When You Get Older
Dancing on My Own
Who's that Girl
as well as others,
and ending w/
Show Me Love &
With Every Heart Beat

(Dancing on My Own)

(Robyn Montage)
The energy was raw, the set was flawless, and Robyn was unstoppable.
From start to finish was on fire, dancing and appeasing the crowd
The entire Webster Hall was ablaze during her set.
Needless to say, when she tours again in support of Body Talk pt. 2...
I will be in attendance, pt. 2 is out Sept 7th, and is already burning up my playlist.
