I got excited at first when I read this. I thought, "First Robyn, and now Sally Shapiro", but in fact the tour dates Sally Shapiro has just announced (Mercury Lounge on March 7th) are in fact JUST DJ DATES....

Acclaimed and ever-elusive Swedish pop princess Sally Shapiro, and her producer Johan Agebjörn, are very excited to announce their first-ever DJ Tour of the US and Canada in March of 2008. This rare set of live appearances by the winsome twosome comes in the wake of Sally's critically-lauded debut release of Disco Romance in the US, on Paper Bag Records. A remix album for Sally Shapiro, titled Remix Romance, is scheduled for release in Spring of 2008 on Paper Bag Records with contributions from the Junior Boys, and renowned Norwegian producer Lindstrøm, among others.
Dates below....

DOWNLOAD: Sally Shapiro - He Keeps Me Alive (MP3)

editor's note: My favorite release this week is Sally Shapiro. Also, I guess it comes out this week in the U.S. - not two weeks ago (that was Canada). Largehearted Boy....

Im Not There SoundtrackOf all the week's releases I have heard so far, the soundtrack to the Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There has held the most appeal. Featuring indie artists from Sonic Youth to Yo La Tengo to Jeff Tweedy, this could be my favorite compilation of the year.

The soundtrack to the Joy Division biopic Control is also out tomorrow, along with US releases of three of the band's remastered albums with bonus material, Closer, Still, and Unknown Pleasures.

Other notable reissues include two Tegan and Sara discs, If It Was You and So Jealous.

Of the remaining discs, I can strongly recommend Nicole Atkins' debut album, Neptune City and Who Goes There by Ian Ball (of Gomez).

Have I left anything noteworthy off the list? What new music releases can you recommend this week? What should I avoid? What are you picking up?

DOWNLOAD: Shout Out Louds - Tonight I Have To Leave It (MP3)

Lykke LiPeter Bjorn and John, Shout Out Louds, and Lykke Li are all from Sweden. Shout Out Louds play Bowery Ballroom in NYC tonight (Oct 25), Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow, Maxwell's on Saturday, and then they continue their North American tour (with Johnossi - also from Sweden). Björn Yttling (Bjorn) produced Our Ill Wills - the new Shout Out Louds record out on Merge. 21-year old Lykke Li (real name = Lykke Zahrisson) sings the girl parts on that record. Lykke Li just came out with her own EP as well. It was also produced by Bjorn. Bjorn and Lykke are here in NYC working on her full length album - which also explains part of the reason Peter and Bjorn have been around town. Lykke Li was the girl singing the the girl part on "Young Folks" at the CMJ show at Galapagos. Lykke Li is playing her own two shows - a free one at Knitting Factory on October 29th, and a not-free one at Mercury Lounge the next day. Bjorn will probably be at those shows to help her out. Maybe Bjorn and Lykke will also both be at the three NYC-area Shout Out Louds shows to help them out too. Lykke and the Shout Out Louds tour Europe together in November and December. One further connection all these artists have: Bud Fox manages Shout Out Louds, Johnossi, Lykke Li, El Perro Del Mar, and Bjorn. Peter plays Joe's Pub on November 19th. Who knows where the hell John is.

In related news, Sweden's Jens Lekman is also playing two shows this weekend.
