Glasser 10/10 Hollywood Forever/Interiors

October 11th, 2013 by Tori Holder

Going past the main gates at LA’s historic Hollywood Forever Cemetery to slipping through the side entrance and up the stairs to the second floor of the Masonic Lodge is a rite unto itself, spooky and still give way to a warm and relaxed entryway where those in the know proceed into the very intimate mainstage room. Any act performing at this venue already has the bar set pretty high, and Glasser leaps over it with ease, performing a stellar set in support of the new album Interiors.
New songs as well as those from the 2010 debut Ring intertwine in the set list perfectly, despite the new albums decidedly more metallic sheen. In a pause between songs, Cameron Mesirow quietly claims : I always liked to pretend I was in the movies, this way I sort of am. And with swirling projection backdrops behind her from liquidy blobs to the surface of the moon it’s an easy jump for any artist to make. But it’s Mesirow’s constant expressiveness that reminds of Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills, using her stage presence to skewer the conceptions female protagonist that easily extends to the title of frontwoman. Her doe eyed glances at the crowd, shaking, and brief serenade of a TV screen could look very lost and frightened, but are acted out so deliberately that there’s no doubt where the control of the room lies. Paired with her stunning vocals that more than justify the typical comparisons to acts like Björk and Zola Jesus, the show feels as much concert as performance art. Not that the product is by any means stuffy or difficult to understand, in fact the connection is so immediate it borders on primal and garnered roars of applause at every possible silence. Shayna Dunkelman  sits in managing  all electronics and percussives, and with exceptional force and deft, adding a power to the songs that would be able to fill the venue 100 times over if needed.
