ICYMI: MARGARET GLASPY ON CONAN
7/13/16

I wanna go to a party with Margaret Glaspy just so I can sit in a corner and judge people with her.

The angsty troubadour released her debut full-length, Emotions and Math, via ATO last month (6/17 to be exact), and she effortlessly paints a technicolor picture of quarter-life disarray and all the yearning and ambivalence the age has to offer.

Her sounds—and her lyrics, for that matter—can at times have a serrated and aggressive quality that dance intriguingly with her generally buttery vocals and position her as a modernized Fiona Apple, but with more grit and less insecurity.

Delicate, yet abrasive. Strong, yet soft. One can only assume the poetic punk has a Patti Smith poster stapled to the interior walls of her skull.

Glaspy performed the set's third track, "You and I," on Conan last night, so sit down, shut up and check it out.
