Track of the Day…"Home" from Glasser
True Panther 2010
Listen to “Home” MP3
Following-up on last year's EP Apply and various appearances including opening spots for the likes of XX and Jonsi, Glasser (a/k/a Cameron Mesirow) has released her exciting debut Ring. On the release, Cameron worked with producer Ariel Rechtshaid, experimenting with, developing and opening up many tracks which she had originally recorded herself (rather amazingly) on GarageBand.
An excellent example of Cameron's textured sound is the track "Home". The song is insistent - retreating and attacking in equal measure with Cameron's melodies riding on string progressions and tribal percussion.

Track of the Day…”Satellite” from Lelia Broussard
Elle Beezley 2010
Listen to “Satellite” MP3
Though she is only just 21 years of age, Lelia Broussard’s swish revels in a soulful and intelligent sound. On her new release Masquerade, Broussard has combined the impact of her Southern Louisiana home with a pure Philly pop sound.
“Satellite” is the lead single from the album (released on Nov. 2). The track pulses with an uptempo, washboard scratch that encourages her honey-tone voice. The warmth generated is a subtle pop gem.

Track of the Day…”Fribourg” from The Late Call
The Late Call
from You Already Have a Home
Tapete Records 2010
Listen to “Fribourg” MP3
You Already Have A Home is Johannes Mayer’s stunning follow-up release as The Late Call. This new release shows the Stockholm-the based Johannes expanding his sound and venturing out from the introspection of his debut Leaving Notes.
The new release is intimate without being close, each track solidly rooted in the core of Johannes’s voice and acoustic guitar. Orchestration and percussion are used with deft economy, gently lending shape and depth to the album. And collaborators such as Maria Eriksson from The Concretes and Ylva Ceder complement Johannes’s warm and throaty vocals.
You Already Have A Home speaks to universal life experiences -- working to build a life, the inevitable struggles and setbacks, as well as the incredible joys along the way. All of this driven by a confidence and an unflinching belief that we can shape our own circumstances.
The German label Tapete Records will be releasing a special vinyl version of You Already Have A Home which will include the otherwise unreleased track “Valley”.
