iTunes Review

A decent pair of headphones certainly wouldn’t hurt. That way you'll be able to fully appreciate the living, breathing world Glasser’s pieced together on her debut, a tapestry of tone poems that’s constantly on the cusp of something transcendent. Take “Apply,” for instance. Originally cut as a bedroom recording on Glasser’s first 12-inch, it’s now blossomed into a hi-fi blend of stutter-step beats, smeared synths, and vocals that shift from a hoot to a holler to a perfect harmony without losing the song’s locked groove. “Mirrorage” is even more impressive, as it follows a breezy set of wind chimes into a forest that’s as spooky and spellbinding as the one in Björk’s “Human Behavior” video. Elsewhere, xylophones are hammered like hollow bones (“Home”), grandfather clocks and wind-up toys perform a solemn duet (the outro of “Plane Temp”), and a saxophone stumbles its way across speaker-panning drums. To listen is to get lost in it all, and to be perfectly fine with never finding your way back home.

Swirling Layers of Lovely

Glasser is supremely talented. I'm reminded here of School of Seven Bells' multiple layers of sound bliss - washing over me like sonic pear blossoms. Home is the best track for my money. We never know exactly why a piece of music sounds good. All we know is we love it (or not). In this case it was love at first listen for me, and the aural delight is still going.

Glasser has done the impossible...

I can't get over the fact that Glasser is able to flawlessly mesh so many elements that are so different. On one hand, her songs are loose, flowing, tribal, and organic. On the other hand, they are intense, tight, synthy, and artificial. But, mostly, her music is just beautiful. Her voice is perfect, and when it is layered it has a blissful hypnotic effect. Itunes has it tagged as electronic, but Glasser's music isn't far from many of the songs on Yeasayer's "All Hour Cymbals". So, while it is very lame and difficult to confine her music to one genre, if I had to describe Glasser to a friend, I would call it experimental/electronic, tribal dream pop :) However, it's obvious that Glasser isn't innovating just for innovation's sake. Overall, easily one of the top ten albums of 2010! This cd is perfect for fans of School of Seven Bells, Bat for lashes, and The Bird and the Bee.

Eargasm

This album is absolutely STUNNING!! I have been listening to it on repeat for the past three days. "Apply" is one of the most beautiful and interesting songs I have heard in a while.

Buy this album, you will not be disappointed!
