Much of the media coverage surrounding Robyn's 2010 Body Talk trilogy tended to dwell on this Swedish singer's confounding inability to break America à la Katy Perry, whose North American crowds she warmed up this summer. But with a headlining date Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl, it's easy to see that Robyn has made an impact here, and for good reason: The Body Talk records feature some world-class electro-pop tunes in the form of "Dancing on My Own" and "Cry When You Get Older," both of which could bring a tear to even the most jaded club kid's eye. (We saw it happen last year at the Music Box, people.) With Norway's appealingly whimsical Röyksopp, in the U.S. for this show alone.
