MP3: Apply by Glasser
Glasser is one of a few artists from 09-10 that seemed poised for a big break based on a solid amount of buzz but never really seemed to lift off. Which is a shame because the band’s debut album Ring was one of my favorite albums of the year, and opening “Apply” was one of my favorite songs of the year. A propulsive mist of loping tribal drums and droning synths, pierced by Cameron Mesirow’s siren call and primeval shrieks, builds into a lush tangle of harmonies calling in the morning.
