Biography

Interiors, Cameron Mesirow’s second full-length release as Glasser, is a more considered, confident, and much more sharply personal album than its predecessor. It’s central themes are love and anxiety and the spatial constraints of both in the landscape of one’s life. In the three years since Cameron released her breakout debut “Ring”, she toured around the world ... Read more in Amazon's Glasser Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Pristine Pop 13 Dec 2013
By plaid
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a fabulously produced synth-pop album. Reminiscent of Bjork Homogenic/ Vespertine. There are quite a few short instrumentals that maybe don't work so well 'cause the ideas aren't fully fleshed out. All in all though, this is a great album if you like your music bordering on over-produced: for me, Glaser gets the balance just about right.

This review comes from an internet game. You buy an album you've never heard of from a shop. Then you write your impression of it before and after listening to it for the first time.

---BEFORE LISTENING TO IT (11/10/13)---

WHY DID YOU SELECT THIS ONE? I loved the cover. A young woman in a 60s or 70s dress is in a room with a strange polished metal object that seems to be melting. Surrealist Salvador Dali could have created it. The song titles on the back (`Shape', `Landscape', `Forge', `Exposure', `Dissect') are moody and atmospheric in a cold Joy Division sort of way. The song titles sound slightly proggy, although more Arcade Fire than King Crimson. There are three songs called `Window' and part three is sequenced before part two. This is both annoying and interesting. I suspect they are short palette cleansing instrumentals anyway (none of them are over two minutes).

The band name Glasser also makes me think of sheets of glass and glassy surfaces, which for some reason is appealing to me. I think there is a good chance that this could be borderline impenetrable, uniquely odd, emotionally contained music in a similar style to Braids (an ambient prog band from Canada I very highly rate).

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE COVER? I love it. The best cover I've seen all year. The melting shiny metal object, now that I can take the time to look at it, appears to be a meaningless art sculpture. I like how mind-bendingly trippy it is and how the room itself has all sorts of weird angles in it. It reminds me of a cover for a Robert (King Crimson) Fripp and Brian (Roxy Music) Eno album called No Pussyfooting. I've not heard it, but I read a review and it showed the cover of them sitting in a room with mirrors on all four sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frosty but Engaging 15 Oct 2013
By Robert Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Just getting my head around this one, and I imagine somewhere out there someone may have already commented on the singer's breathlessness and phrasing being similar to Bjork. Unlike Bjork she doesn't pitch her voice as high, nor is she quite so theatrical. The scope of her compositions though are just as ambitious, and the artfulness never distracting from the enjoyment factor. Chilly art pop I guess I would call this, but not pretentious just really engaging and different. Few subtle beats, some space for the music to breath, a lovely voice.

Actually the music and composition remind me very much of David Sylvian's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experimental Pop Done Right! 20 Oct 2013
By T. A. Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The biggest problem with synthesizers is that they’re not so good at communicating emotion1. Most traditional instruments (whether it be stringed, brass, or percussion) can easily convey sadness, happiness, or loneliness at the ready, but because synthesizers by their very nature do not have a natural, empathetic sound: they’re harder to relate to. But what if you wanted your music to sound cold and personless?

Glasser’s second album, Interiors does just that – it incorporates synthesizers and drum machines to achieve something that sounds less like music and more like architecture. Anyone who tuned into Glasser’s (stage name for Cameron Mesirow) debut album, Ring, will already be familiar with this formalist artist: she’s not an overly emotive musician, but she’s got a great set of pipes, and a good ear for new, intriguing sounds. There’s a bit of a difference between Ring and its follow-up Interiors, though. For one, most of the tribal influences that underlined Ring have been replaced with cold synths and drum machines. The other is that Mesirow sounds more confident this time around, and it’s reflected not only in the texture of her arrangements, but in the tone of her voice. Her voice is full, but soft. She has great control over it while she navigates some of Interiors tricky terrain.

Perhaps the most striking thing about Interiors is how seductive it is. Mesirow’s voice is one of the only constants on the album, and she lets the music behind her shift, melt, and wrap around the vocal tracks. This may be best embodied with the second track, “Design”. Hand claps, deep inhales, triplet-synthesizer notes, and diving bass all make up the music behind Mesirow, but she sings as if the backing track is a (mostly) ordinary song. Most of the other tracks on Interiors follow a similar formula: the musical landscape is ambiguous and amorphous2, and Glasser’s vocals rarely rise above her melancholic, provocative croon. The more experimental tracks are reserved for the instrumentals: a three-part suite titled “Windows”3.

Mesirow’s music and delivery isn’t so far removed that it’s peerless though; her closest musical relatives would likely be Bats For Lashes, Zola Jesus, and Grimes at times. However, Glasser is doing things on Interiors that I haven’t seen any other artist do: you can study this album and pick apart the sounds, or you can just sit back and let it draw you in. For an experimental record, it’s surprisingly accessible, or, perhaps maybe I should rephrase that as: for an pop record, it’s surprisingly experimental. At its worst, Interiors is too far removed from Mesirow’s natural sound that the music is just too cold or too alien. Overall, it’s a better album than her impressive Ring, and where she’ll go from here – well, that’s anyone’s guess at this point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transportative Soundscapes 12 Nov 2013

Gorgeous architectural soundscapes. A delight for wandering around in nature or cracking on with creative work. A total delight. Thanks Glasser!
4.0 out of 5 stars A great sophomore album that repays attentive listening 16 Aug 2014
By Steward Willons - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I was a huge fan of Glasser’s debut album, and so I preordered Interiors on vinyl when it was announced. My first reaction was that her raw style had been overly sanitized, and her style had become too derivative of Bjork. I think a lot of music journalists felt this way as well judging by the lukewarm reception of the album.

However, I continued to listen and I began to realize that it’s every bit as good as Ring - just a bit different. The tracks on Ring had a grittiness and a lack of polish that I found very appealing. As I understand it, at least part of the album was put together using consumer software like GarageBand. The lack of polish gave it a sort of urgency that was charming. Glasser’s production skills on Interiors has increased drastically to the point that this sounds as polished as any mainstream album, but the quirkiness remains.

Yes, the way she layers her voice is reminiscent of Bjork on Vespertine, and yes, some of her melodic lines could be described as Bjorkian. This isn’t a huge problem for me because it’s still obviously a Glasser album. The songs still take unexpected turns, her voice is great as ever, and we still get plenty of her weird vocal sounds popping up here and their.

Lyrically, I have virtually no idea what most of these songs are about. Part of it is because I haven’t actually looked at the lyrics. Some tracks like Keam Theme are straightforward songs about a guy and a girl. Others, like the trio of tracks called “Window,” are very perplexing in a poetic manner. I never really listened to Glasser for her lyrics anyway. I love the timbre of her voice, her songwriting quirks, her odd rhythms, her cool synth colors, and the way she uses her voice rhythmically to punctuate the texture with exuberant outbursts.

If you like Bjork, you should check Glasser out. If you liked Ring, you should also give Interiors a chance, although you will probably need to listen to it a few times before it grows on you. Some tracks are better than others, but overall, it’s a very solid sophomore release, and I can’t wait to see what Glasser comes up with next!
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Sound and Look 13 Feb 2014

Enjoyed the amazing design of the album and the sound. I always enjoy music with lyrics that you can understand and meaningful. The design of the album make you want to say "how did they do that!" Glasser's Interiors makes you think of your spaces and how they make you feel.
