The American Sasami Ashworth spent years playing with the garage rock band Cherry Glazerr, writing for Curtis Harding and Wild Nothing and composing music for films and advertisements. After a long, hard struggle, she finally found room for her own compositions. And they were worth waiting for: Sasami is a sincere, personal debut album, on which Sasami plays many of the instruments herself, including the French horn.
