Deradoorian – “A Beautiful Woman”

A month before Bitte Orca came out back in 2009, Dirty Projectors’ then bassist/vocalist Angel Deradoorian released her fantastic debut EP Mind Raft, which proceeded to get swept up in that album’s magnetic pull. It was both a gift and a curse: It got Deradoorian’s melty, whacked-out songs out there in a way that probably… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We’re on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers’ (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

CMJ 2011: Stereogum, Domino, Ribbon Music, Todd P Showcase @ 285 Kent 10/19/11

Thanks to everyone who came to 285 Kent last night for our party with Domino/Ribbon Music, and Todd P, and the Software label. Hope everyone that wanted to get in, got in — I know it was a wet night to be on the sidewalk and shut out of a show. Many propers to all… More »

Stereogum CMJ Parties 2011: Titus Andronicus, Animal Collective’s Geologist & Deakin, Twin Sister, More

Next week, NYC’s streets will be teeming with a mix of earnest collegiate indie rock aficionados and grizzled music biz veterans. There will be wonderful lineups at all sorts of venues, and if you pick the right show you may just see a band that will be written about on a blog the next day. More »

Stereogum Presents… STROKED: A Tribute To Is This It

The Strokes’ debut album Is This It was first released on 7/30/01. To help us celebrate this 10th Anniversary, we asked some of our favorite indie bands to cover each track. The resulting collection, STROKED: A Tribute To Is This It, is in the spirit of our previous free tribute albums for Radiohead’s OK Computer,More »

Deradoorian – “You Carry The Deed (Hidden Cat Remix)”

Just shy of a year after releasing Dirty Projector Angel Deradoorian’s spare and sultry solo debut EP/statement-of-intent Mind Raft, the folks at Lovepump hit us up with a double-dip of good news: Angel’s busy writing a new record, and will stop the gap between releases with a track-for-track Mind Raft remix EP. First up comes one… More »

Björk & Dirty Projectors @ Housing Works Bookstore, NYC 5/8/09

What started as a mutual admiration uncovered by Dirty Projectors’ cover of “Hyperballad” for Enjoyed crystallized into an unforgettable evening of Bitte Björka at Housing Works Bookstore in SoHo on Friday. Our very own Brandon Stosuy worked tirelessly to conceive and bring it to reality (Brandon is a HW board member and this event wa… More »

Stream Deradoorian’s Mind Raft EP

We’re heard two songs from present-day Dirty Projector Angel Deradoorian’s debut solo EP so far. Stream those and rest of Mind Raft at her Muxtape page. The EP’s out today, and there’s a release party at Cake Shop in the LES tonight. Should be fun. Maybe she’ll sing “Two Doves.”… More »

Dark Was The Night Live @ Radio City Music Hall, NYC 5/3/09

The fear with any supertalent variety show like last night’s Dark Was The Night live event is that the appeal on paper will far outstrip the appeal of having your ass glued to a seat for four hours. And it was a very impressive piece of paper. But like the record that inspired it, last… More »

New Deradoorian – “You Carry The Deed”

Amber Coffman isn’t the only one of Dirty Projectors’ sirens exploring R&B. Pair the DPs’ “Stillness Is The Move” with Angel Deradoorian’s “You Carry The Deed,” from her solo EP Mind Raft. More »

SXSW 2009: Dirty Projectors’ “Stillness Is The Move” FTW

Dirty Projectors have been playing only Bitte Orca tunes in their SXSW sets, and Amrit tells me yesterday’s performance at Emo’s Jr. was unreal (his pics adorn this post). The crowd apparently cheered so loudly, Dave Longstreth had to plug his ears. NPR’s recording of the indie sextet’s earlier gig at The Parish (3/19) suggest… More »

Dirty Projectors’ Bitte Orca: Album Art, Tour Dates, Live Songs

An exciting year for independent music releases just got another infusion of awesome. Most bar chats and twitter RTs have cited the Grizzly Bear/Animal Collective axis for 2009’s likely blockbusters, and for good reason, but reserve a slot near the top of the year-end list you’ve already compiled: Dirty Projectors are putting out their fifth… More »

New Deradoorian (Angel From Dirty Projectors) – “High Road”

As Dave Longstreth’s Dirty Projectors has metamorphosed, so has the project’s lineup, becoming both a magnet and revolving door for noteworthy avant indie talent (Nat Baldwin, Larkin Grimm, Charlie Looker, etc. and etc.). Two years ago he rung in the Rise Above era and subsequently a phenomenal (and photogenic) lineup that’s helped bring the band… More »
