Glasser New Album, Fat Freddy's, the Datsuns and More

Glasser New Album, Fat Freddy's, the Datsuns and More


Glasser Announces New Single 'Shape' & Album Release Date


Last week, American experimental singer-songwriter Glasser shared a note and a new track, hinting at the forthcoming release of a new album. Today we’re proud to announce that album now has a New Zealand release date – October 4th 2013 – and a title INTERIORS.
The follow up to 2010’s critically acclaimed debut Ring, Interiors was produced by Glasser and Van Rivers (Fever Ray, Blonde Redhead), and is a much more considered, confident, and sharply personal album than its predecessor.
In the three years since Glasser released her breakout debut album Ring, she has toured around the world (with Jónsi of Sigur Rós, The XX, Delorean, and others) and left her California home for New York City.

The collapsing of California’s dreamy, empty expanse for that of New York City’s frenetic, tightly-knit landscapes set off a new trajectory of exploration for Glasser, one that focused on the definition of space, both outside and in. This tension between the interior and the exterior sets the tone for Interiors. In architect Rem Koolhaas’ book Delirious New York, which Glasser credits as an inspiration, the author suggests that New York’s massive, stoic-faced buildings are monuments rife with secrets. Interiors is Glasser’s attempt to exorcise and address some of those metropolitan secrets. On album track “Landscape” Glasser explores the limitations of symbiosis in a romantic relationship, while “Exposure” characterizes the alienation of life in an ever-changing metropolis.
Glasser has always valued a visual component to compliment the music. For Interiors, Glasser worked with artist Jonathan Turner, a member of performance art group Yemenwed. Jonathan’s futuristic work establishes the visual palate for all the album’s visuals – all of the artwork, videos, and photos are the result of Glasser and Jonathan’s collaboration.
All twelve of Interiors’ tracks are being previewed via a number of awesome Instagram accounts; a search for #Glasserinteriors will let you see all of them in a nice grid.
