There’s brutal honesty in the songs of  Margaret Glapsy that can make them feel cold, but they’re also heartfelt. That’s part of what makes Glaspy a top new artist of 2016 .

Glaspy’s new album Emotions And Math, made with her band, is a huge leap from her earlier EPs Homeschool (2012) and If & When (2013), which mostly consisted of the singer and her electric guitar. You can hear Glaspy’s sharp words on those older records, but now that wit and wisdom packs a confident punch — as does her guitar playing, which is no longer simply fingerpicked, but also crunched with power chords behind a newly brazen voice.

The Tiny Desk Concert provides a great example of how much power can be found in simplicity and purity. Everything serves the songs here: There’s no overplaying, no frills, just great music and a tremendous new artist who sounds thrilled to be playing it. Emotions And Math is available now catch her this weekend at the Bodega.
