MP3 At 3PM: Sally Shapiro

sallylean3365Swedish disco artist Sally Shapiro is a puzzling character. Despite being completely anonymous (she has never performed live or revealed her real name), she and producer Johan Agebjörn somehow managed to get people’s attention with 2007 debut album Disco Romance in the age of the celebrity. And now, she combines an odd selection of genres such as trance, cosmic disco, acid, ambient and jazz on sophomore album My Guilty Pleasure (Paper Bag). But it works: The spellbinding synth and melancholy lyrics on tracks like “Dying In Africa” will sweep you off your feet. Plus, here’s a bonus mp3 for “Miracle.”
