A seasoned collaborator on high profile projects, former Dirty Projectors bassist Angel Deradoorian’s third full-length solo record infuses lo fi indie rock touched with exotic scales and textures to anchor the direct, transparent mysticism of her lyrics. Highlights: “Saturnine Night,” “Monk’s Robes,” “Sun” 

Vital & constantly transforming into something unexpected, this whole work of art is such an intense journey thru Deradoorian’s latest dreamscape

After zoning in on starry ambience and minimalism on 2017’s Eternal Recurrence, Angel Deradoorian returns to polyglot psych rock on “Find the Sun”. From the motorik chug of “Saturnine Night” to the suave flute-led jazz pop of “Devil’s Market,” she renders familiar sounds with such style, character, and attention to detail that you might as well be hearing them for the first time. Deradoorian is quietly self-possessed, nearly beatific, in her movements through these environs, distinguishing herself with a rare quality among her psychedelic cohort: restraint.


“a gloomy and intoxicating song that features her soaring vocals on top of a chugging riff that keeps building over the track’s 7-minute length.” – Stereogum on “Saturnine Night”

“Primeval … The track is propulsive and confrontational in a way indie rock rarely is, reminiscent of Natasha Khan’s Sexwitch side project in its psychedelic, multicultural influences and hypnotic chanting.” – Paste on “Saturnine Night”

Deradoorian sings with a hymnal affect over light acoustic strums and regal piano arpeggios, her vocals eventually layering into a majestic choir that evokes the spiritual energy of the song’s lyrics.” – Consequence of Sound on “Monk’s Robes”

Released September 18th, 2020

Produced by Angel Deradoorian with Sonny DiPerri
