Glasser Headlines Stacked Showcase Tonight at Music HallOctober 15th, 2013
As Glasser, singer-songwriter-producer Cameron Mesirow makes dreamy, folk-tinged synth pop that’s earned her comparisons to the Cocteau Twins and even Joni Mitchell. Her debut full-length, Ring, was released to a fair amount of acclaim in 2010. In grading it an A-, the A.V. Club said, “It’s an ambitious, perhaps even hypercompositional debut, one whose strange beauty demands attention.” Glasser (above, doing “Treasury of We”) then took those tunes on the road, touring with the xx and Sigur Rós. But now she’s back with her recently released sophomore effort, Interiors (stream it below). It’s a more personal album—dealing with love and anxiety—about which NME notes: “Mesirow is in confident control of an inviting world that’s all her own.” See her, along with a stacked lineup of Kelela, Empress Of, Kirin Callinan and Lil’ Jabba, tonight at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
