Lovely, lovely Glasser!

9 Feb

Glasser is the stage name of L.A. musician, Cameron Mesirow. I found her debut album “Ring” at the Rough Trade shop at Brick Lane market in London in october last year, and ever since then I’ve been completely smitten.

Her album really took to my liking and it was with me a lot of the time while I was travelling ’round Europe. Maybe I have an extra dimension to her music, because of all the memories? but I reeeeeeeally like it!

Listen to the first track on the album: “Apply”.

Maybe you already know her and love her to?
If you saw some of the picture movies I made along the trip, you’ll probably remember her sound to. For instance the one from the Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris, that I’m still totally in love with.
The track here is called, T. (Make sure to pass the cemetery if you’re in the eastern part of Paris at some point. HUGE experience!)

Anyways! Glasser has my best of recommendations and you should really get moving and spend a little money on this brilliant piece of work! Being a big fan of the Fever Ray project, I wasn’t at all surprised to read that two of the Fever Ray producers Van Rivers & The Subliminal Kid (alongside producer Ariel Rechtshaid) were also involved in the making of “Ring”. An album that doesn’t have an ending nor a start, and therefore goes on and on for ever and ever in a never ending loop …

Or, at least it could :)

Also, you might wanna check out this loooooovely remix that Jamie XX did last year. “Tremel” in it self is a really nice track, but Jamie XX added some more bass, changed the tempo a few places and in my opinion, really made a perfect remix! (Kinda makes you feel like it’s already Friday night!)

Live at Lille Vega
This Sunday Glasser finally came to Copenhagen and I went to see the concert with some good friends. Yai!
It totally met my expectations – and then some.

Really an amazing concert where everything just fits together and where sound, light, costumes and the intensity of the music just makes everything flow towards you, grab you and gently suck you into all the wonders.

Ahhh … A perfect way to end a weekend and begin a new week!

For more on Glasser go here and make sure to treat yourself to her album. It’s available at iTunes store. Really easy. I’m totally convinced that you deserve it …
It’s Wednesday!

4th stop : Paris

20 Oct

Awwwwww how I love this city! Don’t know what it is, but it just feels so good coming to Paris.

On second thoughts it might be because of the fact that I got away alive (and with no visual diseases) from that insanely nasty hotel in London ; )

Took the TGV train under the canal from London to Paris. 2 hours and 20 minutes and you roll into Gard du Nord. Brilliant!

Did a lot of lovely and memorable things in Paris and met some really nice people, but the first thing I’d like to share is the experience of Père Lachaise. A really big cemetery in eastern Paris. Soooo nice! And strangely enough – actually really inspiring! Took a ton of pictures, so here’s a little movie with some of them.

Enjoy.
