NY-via-LA-via-Bay Area chanteuse Glasser (a.k.a. Cameron Mesirow) finally unveiled her debut album, Ring, last week and now, as she gets set for a quick October jaunt around the UK and a November US tour, another free offering from the record has fallen from the heavens. "Mirrorage" finds Mesirow employing her vocal acrobatics over a warm electronic pulse and sparkling, chime-based melody. People will undoubtedly compare this to Björk, which isn't off base, but this is much more inviting and less weird, even with the scary robot vocal effects that come in about 2/3 of the way through the song (probably thanks to producers Van Rivers and the Subliminal Kid, who employed similar trickery in their work with Fever Ray). Over the course of three-plus minutes, Glasser spins quite the intoxicating web, and we're thinking that plenty of folks will gladly crawl inside.
