Glasser Is Back And Giving Us Big Björk Vibes

by Sarah Jones

A collection of surprising juxtapositions, Crux is an understated work that gradually reveals its complexity. This album is Glasser’s first in a decade and she has learned some new vocal techniques since 2013; the effect at times heavily references Björk—tracks like “Vine” and “Mass Love” sound like something straight out of Vespertine. The album works best when Glasser incorporates unexpected instruments to the mix to add a warmer, human element. Amidst the minimalist electronica, standouts such as “Knave” (steel guitar), “Thick Waltz” (piano), and “Clipt” (fiddle and flute) contain surprising combinations of digital and analog sounds that keep things interesting.
