Glasser - New Waves @ Breaking More Waves

Glasser is the alter ego name for one Cameron Moscow a musician from the United States who creates the kind of dreamy rhythmic ghost dance that could sit comfortably next to the second Bat For Lashes album. Glasser has a misty new-age sound, but keeps on the correct side of being a soundtrack to sleep by layering primitive childlike notes and tribal beats over each other to make something that verges on spiritual. Her debut EP Apply was released in the US last year, the tracks originally recorded using garageband. Glasser is now working on an album, with her original songs being reworked with new music and vocals. Although Glasser has yet to release anything in our homeland of the UK, moves are afoot for her songs to be more available here in the future.

Besides creating her mystic maverick pop, Glasser has also been involved in the production of a conceptual piece of music using a giant bifurcated pump organ together with designer Tauba Auerbach. They performed daily at the Deitch Projects contemporary gallery in New York which you can see here. Glasser also runs an image blog here where you can find sculptured forms made from empty tea bags, photos of discarded vegetable rubbish, puffy jewellery and a variety of intricate and unusual patterns. For now, here is the video for the Glasser song Tremel, which demonstrates her astral and bewitching musical style perfectly.
