Having been infatuated with a single or two of Glasser’s 2010 music blog bounties, it was hard not to check out the ethereal, lo-fi electronica goddess and Los Angeles local, Cameron Mesirow.

Expecting a mellow, even mediocre set from a burgeoning indie-electronica artist, the gauze-clad Mesirow actually impressed with a dynamic, gorgeously vulnerable stage presence, slipping shy seductive smiles to the audience before she through her arms above her head in musical ecstasy.

While the “Apply” singer is a lot more deconstructed on her album, on stage she sounds like a sun-drenched, psychedelic version of Bjork or a less creepy version of The Knife.

Her sound is definitely for the more experimental and artistic-minded, but so was Bjork’s, and she became an internal hit. Mesirow’s stunning fragility gives her the upper hand on most pretty female electronic artists these days. Watch out for this one. She might become the next dream-pop-meets-performance-artist superstar.
