Deradoorian’s voice as the former bassist, keyboardist and vocalist for Dirty Projectors, her levitating vocals buoyed the Brooklyn-based group will be performing in Prague.
She’s been a member of Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, sang on Flying Lotus’ Siren Song and has collaborated with Vampire Weekend, Björk, Matmos, the Roots, et al. She performed with Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) at the 2018 edition of Moogfest. Dearadoorian is back with a new album Find the Sun. It is not the record Angel Deradoorian sat down to make. It’s a waypoint on a spiritual journey of acceptance, the result of years of lifting veils that obscured her innermost self, and coming to the realization that in order to find peace, she might need to cede a bit of control. The result is something that could only be found by the physical act of its construction. After years of making records alone, Deradoorian spent the last few years in New York City doing improvised collaborations with other musicians, connecting with people and creating a desire to carry that energy to the recording of her next album. That record, Find the Sun , is a snapshot of her mental and spiritual state at the time, the result of loosely guided jams with a band of like-minded souls with the intention of making something raw and vulnerable, with little rehearsal.
