• “Soaring vocals with free-flowing, rhythm-obsessed eclecticism that make for a notably welcoming collection of atmospheric, electronics-brushed pop” – Pitchfork
  • “It’s Glasser’s sonic constructions which holds our interest first and foremost; a bolder and more up-front sound” – The Line Of Best Fit

Glasser, the elevated electronic project from Cameron Mesirow, is releasing her anticipated third album ‘crux’ via One Little Independent Records on October 6th.

‘crux’ takes Glasser’s entrancing blend of dreamy experimental pop and layered electronics to explore themes of personal identity, emotional vulnerability, and the human experience. The album maps journeys of self-discovery as she unpacks intimate experiences with a maturity and cathartic outlook. Specifically, the tracks on ‘crux’ discuss the death of an old friend, her meditations on the fragility of life and the delicacy of relationships in times of uncertainty. More than anything it’s about the importance of creativity and writing while healing, and on an individual level, looking inward and the examination of one’s grief, anxiety, and insecurities. Musically it searches outward, it includes the use of traditional folk, Celtic to communicate her Scottish roots, and Eastern-European styles, all introduced to her lush, atmospheric production, intricate vocal harmonies, and complex rhythms.

Apart from her majestic 2022 single ‘New Scars’, ‘crux’ marks a return following her sublime ‘Sextape’ mix in 2018 and two critically acclaimed albums, ‘Ring’ and ‘Interiors’, released in 2010 and 2013 respectively. In this time Glasser performed at MoMA, PS1, The Walker Arts Center, MOCA, Coachella, Primavera, Latitude, Field Day, and she toured with the XX and Sigur Rós' Jónsi.

Born in Boston, raised in the Bay Area by musician parents, Mesirow’s Mother was a founding member of Human Sexual Response, a queer new wave band who performed in the late 70’s into the early 80’s. She crafted GarageBand demos that pitted her delicate, swooping vocals over sparse electronic rhythms and circular melodies that evoked avant-garde music and global folk at the same time. These tracks made their way to labels True Panther and Young Turks, which released both her albums. She self-released ‘Sextape’, an intimate project that built her production around conversations on formative sexual experiences, which was praised by fans and critics alike, before signing to One Little Independent Records, marking her next creative step.
