Anna von Hausswolff @ Glasslands - 7/10/2013
When the most prominent instrument on your album is the pipe organ, it's hard not to conjure up old-school gothic images. Swedish singer Anna von Hausswolff didn't lug an actual pipe organ into Glasslands last night (7/10) for her show celebrating the U.S. release of her album, Ceremony. But with her own seriously spine-tingling pipes and medieval organ jams, things did feel cathedral-esque. Lightening the mood, somewhat incongruously, was the twee ukelele pop of opener Kay Kasparhauser. Pictures from the show are in this post.
While in town, von Hausswolff stopped by WNYC's studios to perform on Soundcheck and you can stream that, along with more pictures from Glasslands, below.
