Glasser is the nome de guerre of “one-woman orchestra” Cameron Mesirow. Her debut, Ring, is scheduled for release tomorrow – Sept. 28 – on True Panther Sounds, and is definitely worth taking note of. Intriguingly thoughtful arrangements highlight catchy songwriting and beautiful vocals that can go head-to-head with most of Mesirow’s contemporaries including the likes of Musical Pairings’ favorites such as St. Vincent or Mirah. This is especially true on tracks like “Home” which is a swirling vortex of hand claps, synths and xylophone loops, or the more straightforward “Glad” which allows Mesirow’s lovely vocals to float care-free along a river of down-tempo doo-wop harmonies. There are a lot of highlights here and I won’t try to list them all, but it is worth noting that it is a thoroughly solid LP with no real duds. Take a listen to the track below to get a better sense of what you can expect. Ring is available in limited edition (500 copies) vinyl, which I highly recommend grabbing before they inevitably sell out (I’ve already bought mine). Get it from True Panther‘s website.
