Platform Artist Spotlight // Glasser

Photobucket

Glasser, also known as Cameron Mesirow, has been on Platform's list of must-watch artists we eagerly anticipate new music from. We first wrote about Glasser back in 2008 when she released her track Apply on the Urban Outfitters sampler. And since then, she's evolved stylistically and musically and is now touring with another favorite, The XX, all throughout the UK.

We're looking forward to what Glasser has in store for us in 2010, including her UK debut 12",Tremel, to be released March 29th on Young Turks.

The Selby is a site designed by artist Todd Selby featuring the interiors of various tastemaker's homes. And as you may have taken note, I'm an avid reader of the home blog, as I post related updates on Platform all the time. That's why I nearly fell out of my chair when I found out that a book is set to be released April 1st, which will include dozens and dozens of home imagery at our disposal. Now I, and you, can thumb through inspiration anytime we please.

**Disclaimer: if over the top dance numbers and excessive eyelash batting are not your thing, do not watch this video.

Peyton Reed, best known for cheer'tastic film Bring It On, directs this video for She & Him. Think of it has the hipsterfied version of Britney Spears' Hit Me Baby One More Time, but better, of course.
