You’re familiar with Angel Deradoorian’s voice… as the former bassist, keyboardist and vocalist for Dirty Projectors, her levitating vocals buoyed the Brooklyn-based group. A member of Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, the voice on Flying Lotus’ “Siren Song,” as well as collaborations with Vampire Weekend, Bjork, Matmos, the Roots et al. Her first song collection, 2009’s Mind Raft EP elicited praise… The Fader hailed her 'zen weed energy' and 'moody dervish spirals'.

Her debut LP, The Expanding Flower Planet reflects a remarkable creative journey. The title came from a tapestry hanging on the wall in front of Deradoorian’s workstation—a Chinese embroidered image of a flower mandala.

“It started to represent to me the growing consciousness of the human mind in the world today,” Deradoorian says. “So the first song I wrote, which I felt appropriate for the album, was called Expanding Flower Planet and represents this desire to broaden the mind and it's capabilities beyond what we are told it can do.”

Deradoorian embodies the synthesizing faint hints of Alice Coltrane and Can, Terry Riley, and Dorothy Ashby. A new world springs from ancient traditions—with East Indian, Middle Eastern, traditional Japanese music and Native American rhythms aligned with Deradoorian’s singular orbit.

The Expanding Flower Planet out now on Anticon
