glasser title Glasser: Ring
Ring is the intimate debut from Cameron Mesirow. Known by her stage name, Glasser, Mesirow’s atmospheric musings blend the styles of Florence and the Machine lead singer Florence Welch with Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes. While her former tour-mates, the xx, Jonsi of Sigur Ros, and Delorean reflect her sound’s wide appeal, Mesirow is quite the wandering spirit. Shoe stores and airplanes were unlikely places in which she recorded her 2009 EP Apply. Meanwhile, Ring manifests these drifting tendencies by diverging in different directions and withholding both a definite beginning and ending. “Apply” marches in with tribal drums and reverb, giving way to hypnotic chanting on “Plane Temp” and “Mirrorage” as well as tambourines and mighty bass on “Clamour”. But Ring is a complicated record and beneath the tender vocals and graceful movement from one track to the next, there is a hint of darkness.
