Sally Shapiro is the new Annie!

posted by on May 21 at 12:43 PM

Sally Shapiro’s new album, Disco Romance, is everything you’ve been waiting for, that is if you’ve been waiting for a new album by Annie.

And if you’re thinking the cover to the album looks a little, well, dated…it’s supposed to. The album as a whole pays homage to Italo Disco’s heyday of 1983. It’s even got really poorly pronounced English lyrics.

It’s fantastic! you can check out samples at my blog here. Inclucing a ZYX remix that is brilliantly Hi-NRG. For even more listens check out her Myspace page.

This is your soundtrack to summer folks! Get On It!

PS. So far I haven’t seen this at any record stores in town, but you can get it from iTunes.

Exactly. And just like Annie, America won't know what to do with her, and Shapiro will become a footnote/cult treasure until Light in the Attic gives her the deluxe reissue in 2028, sparking a nu-italo retro revival.

rigt on, I love sally shapiro! her producer, Johan AgebjŲrn, did a great italo mix a while back that deserves a listen as well (all the classics are on there):

If you're allowed to make a case for a new Annie from a musician who makes vaguely entertaining dare-free indie-disco rather than internally combusted modern pop, whose album came out last year, I'll pull out all the stops for Robyn, whose two year-old album is finally getting released outside of Sweden, who is effortlessly addictive and magnificent, and everything Annie had promised to be.
