What we're listening to - Glasser

LIke a more interesting version of Feist, a sincerer version of Florence and a more believable version of Enya, with smatterings of both Joni Mitchell and Bat for Lashes, Glasser - otherwise known as Cameron Mesirow - releases her debut album 'Ring' this month. Here's the skinny on what to expect.

Ethereal, textural and experimental, the most consistent thing about Glasser's premier offering is her vocals, which manage to pack both subtlety and force in the same punch. Cooked up using all sorts of homemade instruments the album is as out-there as her performances, which regularly see Glasser bathed in kaleidoscopic light and accompanied by a "deconstructed" dance troupe.

Our favourite track from the album is Home, an energetic showcase for Glasser's super-confident melodic approach. Moving seamlessly from tribal beats through to Scandinavian soundscapes of which Sigur Ros would be proud (who, incidentally, Glasser supported last year) the track looks set to affirm Glasser's place on next year's festival circuit.

Glasser's debut album 'Ring' will be released on True Panther on September 28
