Margaret Glaspy Emotions And Math on LP + Download
Emotions And Math is the debut album from New York City songwriter Margaret Glaspy. Recorded at Sear Sound in New York City and mixed by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Lucius, Weezer), Emotions And Math sees Glaspy tackling topics of insecurity, love lost and found, and life on the road with clarity, honesty and a cutting sense of humor, all backed by gritty, fiercely performed electric guitar.
"In a lot of ways, it's kind of how I operate," says Glaspy of the album title. "I've always considered myself a free spirit, someone who goes with the flow, but actually I'm not exactly like that. This record really taught me that I'm super analytical and process-driven. I think they really do go together, emotions and math. Nobody is just one thing."
Her raw sound draws heavily from artists ranging from Elliott Smith to Joni Mitchell and has earned early praise from The New York Times, Stereogum and NME. Rolling Stone hailed her "hot barbs of electric guitar," while VICE Noisey loved her "complex, deceptively heavy riffs with vocals that really stand out and grab you at the throat."
