Deradoorian - EP, MP3, Cake Shop Tonight
Angel Deradoorian releases Mind Raft, her debut EP today on Lovepump United. (First commenter to make a Spinal Tap joke gets a cookie). Deradoorian plays under her last name and has been recording and playing as part of Dirty Projectors for sometime now. (Bitte Orca like whoa, #1 of the year so far?). Of course, this association will lead more than most to Mind Raft, but luckily, it's worth the trip. Mind Raft is a smoother affair than your usual Dirty P project, yet it's at the same time dark and highly melodic. While only 22, Deradoorian offers a solid debut that shows maturity, talent and the influence of years spent with high quality musicians. You can stream Mind Raft this week at Muxtape. Deradoorian is at Cake Shop tonight and the Bell House on the 10th. Don't know if we're feelin this photo shoot though. Weird.
