Interlude: Discovery

While it remains uncertain if Pitchfork's role as a tastemaker is for better or worse, my completely arbitrary belief is that they've found a gem in Sally Shapiro. Much like fellow Swedish (and Pitchfork-endorsed) group The Knife, Sally's identity remains a mystery. Although she appears unmasked, her actual name has not been revealed. While this creates a sense of anonymity, the strength of the songs make her extremely appealing, although I'm predisposed to like this sort of stuff. Here are some samples, generously provided via the official site.
