Deradoorian on “Find the Sun”

Changing Your Paradigm: The Full Interview

Sep 18, 2020

Angel Deradoorian’s new album, Find the Sun, invokes very different imagery compared to her aptly titled solo debut The Expanding Flower Planet. The sensual dance macabre of “Saturnine Night,” the mantra-like repetition of “The Illuminator,” the marching menace of closing track “Sun”; though created with improvisational abandon, these songs are imbued with the tactile quality and purpose of ancient artifacts.  More

Aug 14, 2009

It's too bad that Dirty Projectors singer and bassist Angel Deradoorian must have wanted her debut EP, Mind Raft, to go unnoticed, as she released it only a month before the Projectors' newest LP Bitte Orca. Throughout the modest five-track set, Deradoorian (she takes just her surname for the record) often plays off of clashing harmonies and stream-of-consciousness verses that evoke the EP's title and prove her talents as a solo artist.
