Sally Shapiro

In 2004 we had Annie from Norway. In 2005 we had Robyn from Sweden. So who was our Scandinavian "disco princess" of 2006? That award goes to....Sweden's own Sally Shapiro!

Sally Shapiro"If Sally Shapiro sounds tentative, it's because she never intended on singing. As the story goes, pal and fledgling Swedish producer Johan Agebjörn was so struck by Shapiro's demure caroling voice that he set to the studio and whipped this up specifically for her." [Pitchfork]

"Sally Shapiro is a slice of irresistible italo-disco-synthpop." [Big Stereo]

"Sally Shapiro: The New Belle & Sebastian" [Status Ain't Hood]


P.S. : : Robyn came out with a 5-song EP this year. It's called The Rakamonie EP. It's streaming at her website. I like it. Pitchfork gave it a 7.8.

I was blue and lonely, I couldn't sleep a wink
And I could only get unconscious if I'd had to much to drink.
There was somehow, something wrong somewhere, and each day seemed grey and dead
The seeds of desperation were growing in my head.
I needed inspiration, a brand new start in life,
Somewhere to place affection, but I didn't want a wife.
And then by lucky chance I saw [in] a special magazine
An ad. that was unusual, the like I'd never seen,
"Experience something different with our new imported toy,
She's loving, warm, inflatible and a guarantee of joy."
She came all wrapped in cardboard, all pink and shrivelled down
A breath of air was all she needed to make her lose that frown.
I took her to the bedroom and pumped her with some life,
And later in a moment that girl became my wife.
And so I sit her in the corner and sometimes stroke her hair
And when I'm feeling naughty I blow her up with air
She's cuddly and she's bouncy, she's like a rubber ball,
I bounce her in the kitchen and I bounce her in the hall.
[And now my life is different since Sally came my way]
I wake up [in the] morning and have her on a tray
She's everything they say she was and I wear a permanent grin,
And I only have to worry in case my girl wears pins.

You might want to know that Sally is a vegetarian and her producer Johan is a vegan...and he has some animal rights links from his web site.
