Glasser – “Home”

Things are lining up quite rightly for Cameron Mesirow. Her project Glasser got our attention as a GarageBand document with expansive promise. At our 2009 CMJ showcase, she turned up with fellow True Panther associates Tanlines as backing band; in the time since, she’s experimented with live setups, occasionally just a manned laptop (as at this summer’s MoMA PS1 WarmUp set), or with the backing band of Janka Nabay, as at her set last Friday at Glasslands. I caught both, and it was the Glasslands set that captured some of the more maximalist magic of Ring, her forthcoming debut LP, a reworking of older tracks and a slate of new ones with arrangements aided by producer Ariel Rechtshaid, alongside interstitial compositions and further production work by Fever Ray affiliates Van Rivers & The Subliminal Kid. “Home” showcases Glasser’s vocals at both their most crystalline and complimentary, and the album’s arrangements at some of their most viscerally moving, horns voices and drums stacked densely, swollen up then eased out. Nice and pretty. Take this, “Home”:
