NYC singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy is bringing her 2016 success, Emotions and Math, to the Crocodile stage this weekend. Described by Rolling Stone as “low-end-heavy indie rock with disarmingly honest lyrics,” Glaspy’s debut album off ATO Records has garnered high praise from major media outlets for her refined songwriting abilities, instrumental prowess, and extraordinary voice that can slide from gritty anger (“You and I”) to melodic intricacies reminiscent of Joni Mitchell and Elliot Smith (“Somebody to Anybody”).
For a quick sample of Glaspy’s music, check out her NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert which has accumulated over half a million views.
Opening for Glaspy is singer-songwriter Liza Anne whose Twitter bio provides a perfect summation of her musical tone; “your new favorite melancholia—bringing emotional meltdowns to a city near you.” At age 19, Liza independently released her first album, The Colder Months (2014), and quickly followed up with her second, TWO (2015), between which she moved to Nashville to study at Belmont University and then quickly dropped out to pursue music. Liza’s latest LP is somber and stunningly self-reflective, allowing the listener a porthole into her deepest secrets and the raw, dissonant experiences of life.
Catch Margaret Glaspy & Liza Anne at 9:00 P.M. at The Crocodile on Sunday, August 13. Doors open at 8:00 P.M. Tickets are available here.
