The Belle Jar- Union Station
Mar 5, 2014
Glasser is a singular voice rising above swarming percussion and syrupy synths. Glasser is luxurious. Glasser is a silky blend of worldly sounds and atmospheres. Glasser is one woman: Cameron Mesirow, who recorded her album, Ring, in studios in Los Angeles and Stockholm. Glasser is a highly intimate sound magnified over grandiose chimes, drums and howls. Glasser is an experience.
If music was visual, Glasser would be like a kaleidoscope. Blending colorful percussive creations of hand drums and slinky cymbals with dreamy vocals yelps, Glasser succeeds where others like Björk have previously—creating moods and textures with simplicity and ease. Between the tremendous dreamy highs and lows of her singing, Glasser fills the space with quick voice snippets (howls, barks and clicks). All of the efforts to make a final beautiful product are successful, and Glasser swells into magnificence.
