L.A.'s reigning loop-wizard Cameron Mesirow doesn't need much help making long-form, trance-inducing electronica as Glasser. But that didn't stop the Norwegian producer Lindstrom from unpacking the raw material of her song "Mirrorage" and stretching it out to more than seven languid minutes of Balian bells, Roger Troutman vocoder and sample snippets that lock like watch gears. It's a fine example of a producer fully understanding and rearranging the mechanics of an already great track, and by adding little extra accomplishes so much more for it.
You can catch Glasser at that little clandestine house show in the desert in April, but, coincidentally, Lindstrom will also make his first L.A. appearance at Vanguard on Feb. 11. He's unafraid of the 30-minute song, so bring coffee along with whatever other sundry dance provisions you're taking.
