Robyn back in town

Dance-pop fans — don’t forget! The always-brilliant Swedish sensation Robyn will be hitting town again Tuesday at the Warfield, backing the second volume in her rapid-fire “Body Talk” trilogy (featuring an oddly perfect guest appearance from Snoop Dogg).

This Do-It-Yourself-styled artist just keeps getting better and better, and frappe-swirling musical styles like a coffeehouse barista.

Back home in Stockholm, where diverse stars such as Lykke Li, The Hives and The Concretes all bump into each other on a regular basis, she says there’s “definitely a sense of community.

“We’re not a big hippie family by any means,” adds Robyn, who literally runs her Konichiwa Records imprint from her kitchen. “We’re still a bunch of different artists, making different kinds of music. But because it’s such a small city, it’s impossible to not be aware of each other. And it’s impossible not to collaborate, or at least just get inspired by what’s going on around you.”

Catch her now to preview tracks from “Body Talk Part 3.”
