New Music // Röyksopp – Monument

5 Nov

13 years after their debut album, Melody AM, Röyksopp are calling it quits, so to speak. While they’ve stated they’ll continue making music they’ve decided to part ways with the traditional album format after the release of The Inevitable End on November 11.

While they haven’t had the same peaks as some of their electronic contemporaries like The Chemical Brothers or Daft Punk, Röyksopp have been consistently releasing their particular brand of music for as long or longer than some of the biggest names out there. It would easy to assume this album may not be able to manage the same magic this deep in their career, or that perhaps it will be a victory lap of proven ground, but this reworked track Monument (featuring Robyn on vocals) sounds just as fresh and energetic as anything they’ve ever done. In fact, they sound like they’re just hitting their stride.

What this means for Röyksopp’s music in the future, only time will tell, but for now, enjoy some of the best electronic music from one of the best electronic bands around.
