Glasser “Mirrorage” mp3 + New Tour Dates


Glasser just finished up a run of U.S. Dates with Gayngs. They shared the stage on a number of occasions, recorded a video together, and by most accounts blew a lot of minds. It doesn’t stop for Glasser though. Right about now, Cameron and the band should be landing on the shores of the United Kingdom for a run of U.K and European dates before embarking on a full U.S, tour. We have these dates along with some new U.S. ones (in bold) below.

Also, we’re also thrilled to share a new standout track from Ring (now available in everywhere), Mirrorage. You’ll be seeing some reinterpretations, both visual and aural, of this track in the coming weeks but for the time being, here it is in its original glory.

LISTEN TO RING

Glasser‘s debut album Ring, is set to hit stores on 9/28. Something we haven’t spent much time talking about is how the album is loosely structured like the chiastic (or, Ring) structure used in ancient literature. Ideas are paired in symmetric order, often leading bidirectionally towards a certain concept. Songs are used to represent often contradictory emotional states.. So we wanted your first listen to it to reflect that. No set beginning or end, just dive into the album and go with it.


New Yorkers, Glasser made a special listening installation of the album. Go hang out at AVA Project in the East Village this weekend, bring a beer, and maybe a little pocket change because over the next three days, you can purchase a limited clear vinyl copy of the record at the space 2 weeks before release date (9/28).

Then Glasser is taking off for a string of tour dates with Gayngs, but starting it all off with a really special album release show at Amoeba in Los Angeles!

Glasser- Home (mp3) from Ring

Glasser’s Ring is arriving in our hands September 28th but for now, here is the first taste of Ring entitled “Home”. The song remains in line with the Glasser we’ve heard before, eclectic and beat-driven with instrumental melodies often driven by Cameron’s own voice. But there is a depth to both the arrangement and recording which somehow makes the song simultaneously intimate and explosive.

Announcing Glasser “Ring” out Sept 28



Great news today, after over a year of hard work, envisioning, recording, and arranging her debut album, we are honored to announce Glasser‘s Ring will be released September 28, 2010 on True Panther Sounds. Sonically, lyrically and conceptually Ring is a tremendous leap for Glasser and honestly, a brave new world for us as a label. Just EPIC.

Glasser is the one-woman orchestra of Cameron Mesirow. Her debut album, Ring, is a singular work. It moves like the wake of a small boat in a still lake: each song its own, but leading to, and becoming, the next. In doing so it builds on the tradition of classic albums like Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks, Joni Mitchell’s Blue, and R. Kelly’s Trapped In the Closet song-cycle: albums that as a whole create stories that are bigger than the sum of their individual songs.

Glasser entered our world in 2009 with her debut EP, Apply. Her intimate, luxurious music struck us as MASSIVE, despite being made by Cameron, alone and in airplanes and shoe stores, on Garage Band. It also drew the attention of Ariel Rechshaid (Cass Mccombs, Foreign Born, We Are Scientists) and Van Rivers and the Subliminal Kid (Fever Ray, Blonde Redhead) who worked together with Cameron to re-imagine her musical arrangements, incorporating organic instrumentation like strings, woodwinds, bass, and a wide array of percussion into her once-sparse recordings. Her simple, minimal melodies and rapturous vocals are perfectly complimented by the album’s maximalist arrangements. The voice becomes a focal instrument, delivers abstract stories and sounds that drench the music in emotion without resorting to narrative clichés. It is a wonderful and fully realized accomplishment, an introduction and immersion in Glasser’s world that we’re sure people will want to be a part of for a long time to come.
