Deradoorian Shares Track From Debut Album

Deradoorian has shared 'Komodo,'

Deradoorian’s debut solo album The Expanding Flower Planet arrives in just a few weeks via Anticon on August 21st, and she is sharing her newest song “Komodo” now. Stream the track below.

As the former bassist and vocalist for Dirty Projectors, Angel Deradoorian’s levitating vocals helped buoy the Brooklyn-based group. 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.

The Expanding Flower Planet is an album, a song, a cosmic ideal, and a form of psychic expansion and expanded capability. It transmutes ethereal abstractions into crystalline harmonies and sinuous grooves. It’s music nurtured with the idea of healing, exciting, inspiring, enlightening. Drones, dissonance, warmth and love.

Recorded in various locales over a period of several years, sessions began from scratch in Baltimore, 2011, before moving to her studio in LA. Roughly 90 percent was written and performed solely by Deradoorian, with assists from drummers Jeremy Hyman and Michael Lockwood, guest vocalists Niki Randa and Arlene Deradoorian and engineer/co-producer Kenny Gilmore, who helped the songs breathe.
