Having never heard of LA based Glasser before, this CD came as a total surprise and to be honest, one of the best CD's I've purchased in 2010. Glasser's playful and tribal approach to music tickles my ears and strokes my soul in ways I have not heard before. With touches of tribal percussion, heavy synths and vocal chants Glasser creates a mood that I simply cannot get enough of. After my first listen I immediately started the album over again and savored the beautiful sonic landscape presented. The beats are great, groovy, percussive and highly addictive, but when you add Glasser's voice to the equation you are presented with a sound that sucks you in and hypnotizes you; Glasser's voice cuts through the songs like a hot knife through butter. The album opens with 'Apply' a stunning upbeat, tribal electro-pop number full of vocal chants and shouts that is highly addictive, and one of the best songs on the album. Following the gorgeous 'Apply' comes 'Home', also a favorite of mine. Soaring strings and great beat drive this song while Glasser mesmerizes you in with her vocals. 'Home' is one of those songs that makes you wish you were running through a grassy meadow, sun shining, not a care in the world. I honestly loved every single song on this album and the album has been on constant repeat for days now. Another added bonus to the album is the outro's for each song. Usually during the last 30 seconds of each song Glasser completely throws you for a curve ball and gives you practically a new song, full of gentle clicks, soft percussion and other fun touches that really top off each song. Glasser's music is a treat and you should probably just buy the album, it's that good.Read more ›

Glasser is LA-based lass Cameron Mesirow and although she may have missed the boat a little with Ring, she nevertheless seems to be finding alternative transport to convey her message. Appearing first in 2008 and releasing her well-received debut EP last year, she now finds the musical landscape different. Unquestionably, her direct peer Bat For Lashes did commercially well last year, but 2010 is thankfully less taken with well-produced, quirky female artistes. Happily however, Mesirow has a few tricks up her oversized wizard-sleeves to help her along.

Sitting very, but rarely too comfortably between Natasha Khan and Björk (particularly "Treasure Of We"), Ring is consequently a lush, dense collection of organic electro-pop. Heavy on percussive synth, Mesirow also treats the listener to doses of tribal chant to flavour, sounds of the rainforest to provide mood as well as Nepalese strings to deviate. Keen on flights of fancy as well as fantasy, evocative hand-drummed passages even suggest at an affinity with electro outsiders Telepathe.

With such a busy palette, Ring appears complex, reputedly even being structurally-indebted to The Odyssey of all things, but really it's a laptop production given its shine by Mesirow's reluctance to stand in the shadows of her influences. This has its plusses and minuses. As cuts, the totemic otherworldliness of "Apply" and the grand scale of the theatrics on "Home" are hugely enjoyable, but maybe a ring is too safe a structure on which to base this sound. When faced by an overpopulated niche many of 2010's listeners demand hooking rather than polishing (see "Plane Temp", which perhaps, maybe, with its nonsensical vocal sounds like Enya). To its credit, Ring does this more than it doesn't, but a few more sharp edges would have done it better.

Advised downloads: "Apply" and "Home".
