Australian synthpop band Cut Copy is the most blogged act of the moment on July 22, according to the Hype Machine. In second and third place, and also new to the top ten, are Robyn and Blackbird Blackbird.
Swedish electropop singer-songwriter Robyn released her album Body Talk Pt. 1 in June - her first album since 2005's Robyn. The album's lead single, "Dancing on My Own," became a hit dance single in several countries worldwide. The latest single from that album, "Hang With Me," has just been announced, and the news was accompanied by a nine-minute remix of the track by Kaiserdisco. The single is due out on September 5, the same day as the release of follow-up album Body Talk Pt. 2.
Blackbird Blackbird, the project of San Francisco musician Mikey S, is in the blogs thanks to a remix of its track "Hawaii" by Niva, the moniker of Stockholm- based electro-pop musician Christian Niva. The Road Goes Ever On (theroadgoeseveron.tumblr.com) reviews, "Taking a song that already glides like a parachute through the air, Sweden's Christian Niva has added even more warm air beneath the fabric to let it fall ever so slowly."
