Sally Shapiro, 'Disco Romance' (Paper Bag)

8
Disco Romance
Critical Mass
Label: Paper Bag

by Barry Walters

A fragile, wavering voice swaddled in shimmering synths that recall a particularly bittersweet flavor of European '80s dance pop obscure to American ears -- this is Sally Shapiro. She doesn't perform, give in-person interviews, or reveal her real name. Instead, she offers a love that can burn away the darkness of a lonely heart. Even her missed notes are poetic and genre-specific. Swedish producer Johan Agebjörn re-creates his childhood's soundtrack with uncanny precision, nailing not just the proper drum sounds, but also fluttering keyboard harmonies that weep with wintry joy.
