ABOUT: Rachel Glassberg is a rogue journalist, songsmith and guitarist who sets intricate, witty tales of death, taxes, internet culture, horrible movies and Berlin club bouncers to infectious melodies. She performs both solo and with her band The Disasters, aka Vincent Long (bass), Elke Horner (drums) and Linnea Mårtensson (sax/keys). The result? Take the wit and grit of the New York-Berlin antifolk scene (Jeffrey Lewis, Moldy Peaches, The Burning Hell); add shameless pop harmonies, a touch of country and a saxophone solo.
“Hyper-clever songwriting wrapped in a layer of delightfully-warm twee pop
melodies” – Emperor X
“Strangely touching as it provides a synopsis for all the weirdness the ‘so bad,
it’s great’ movie encapsulates.” – The AV Club on “Song from a Room”
