Last night east side big boys Foreign Born played their record release gig at the relatively newly opened Vacation Vinyl on Hollywood near Vermont. It was a cozy, warm show and the fellas ripped it as a sax-weilding seven-piece, despite how tiny the room was. Read about it here (via LA Weekly‘s West Coast Sound).
No apologies. You can follow me here.
I’ve been enamored with the music of Los Feliz-based Glasser, a.k.a. Cameron Mesirow, for some number of months now, but I’ve mostly gazed from afar. There’s something about her humble-but-bejeweled, dreamy electronic folk-pop that begs to lie undisturbed, like a reflecting pool. Flowery language, I know, but it serves to say that when I finally got the chance to talk to Miss Mesirow, my fears were quelled: to know her music’s story is not to know her songs’ secrets. And discovering that her father is in Blue Man Group is a bizarro sidenote.
Check it all out for yourself at LA Weekly (also on stands). You can also listen to Glasser’s “Apply” in the Lala player.
