Swedish electro-pop artist Robyn had a banner year in 2010, releasing Body Talk Pts. 1 & 2 and Body Talk, a compilation of the first two with five extra tracks. She looks poised to have an even better year in 2011, what with slots in both the Coachella and Sasquatch lineups and a gig opening for none other than Katy Perry. Surely Lollapalooza organizers have given her a call, too.

We’ve featured her here in the past on both sides of the cover equation, and now Joywave wades in with their cover of the superb “Hang With Me.” They slow the track down to a snail’s pace, throw in some backwards vocals and apply an electro-Wall of Sound. Surprisingly, their presentation only serves to accentuate the beauty of the melody, although you may find dancing to this version a bit of a challenge. Download the track below.
