Glasser – ‘Interiors’

An inviting world that’s all her own

Cameron Mesirow’s second album as Glasser initially seems understated, which is surprising given the powerful impression she made on ‘Ring’, her 2010 debut. But when the glacial thump of ‘Keam Theme’ kicks in, a powerful narrative becomes clear. Mesirow suffers from spatial anxiety, but as ‘Interiors’ progresses, she lets herself explore more expansive territory. “Mine is a space that’s bound for change”, she coos on ‘Window III’, and Arthur Russell-ish horns welcome a gorgeous sax solo on ‘New Year’. Yet as her sounds grow bolder, her lyrics become more intimate. Mesirow is in confident control of an inviting world that’s all her own.
