Featured Angel Deradoorian stories

Next week Slasher Flicks — the cosmic power trio comprised of Animal Collective’s Avey Tare, Angel Deradoorian (formerly of Dirty Projectors), and Jeremy Hyman (formerly of Ponytail) — will release their first proper full-length album, Enter The Slasher House. The band makes music that could almost serve as a tripped-out (and slightly more accessible) cousi… More »

It’s our first mixtape of summer! Accordingly, you should probably just act first and think later and just download it with reckless abandon, as you should do absolutely everything now that it is the season of impulsive behavior. But if you are incapable of such youthful indiscretion without examining the fine print/weighing every possible life… More »

Deradoorian – “The Eye”

There’s a driving urgency to “The Eye,” something that wasn’t really present on “A Beautiful Woman,” the first single we heard from Angel Deradoorian’s upcoming debut full-length, The Expanding Flower Planet. Whereas the lead single was comfortable in resting into the lilting choruses that she’s so good at constructing, “The Eye” pushes into them with… More »

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 »

Brandon Flowers – “Can’t Deny My Love”

While the Killers are on hiatus, Brandon Flowers is returning to his solo career, and that means a tilt toward pop. The Killers had plenty of their own big, hooky choruses but still had a brittle rock backbone even during their most high-octane moments. Flowers worked with Ariel Rechtshaid on The Desired Effect, the follow-u… More »

Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks – “Catchy (Was Contagious)” Video

Avey Tare’s music is already pretty cinematic, but his new video for “Catchy (Was Contagious)” takes his compositions to new heights. He creates a film score that gurgles, twists, and pulls for his nine-minute long homage to monster movies. We follow our protagonist, a young blonde-haired boy, as he encounters realistic-looking versions of monster tropes:… More »

Watch A Cool, Animated Trailer For Flying Lotus’ You’re Dead!

Late last month, Flying Lotus finally announced his fifth album, You’re Dead! (that’s its trippy cover art above) and now we’ve got some more news on it, including its guest stars. Not surprisingly, the album features appearances from Brainfeeder acolyte Thundercat, and Captain Murphy (which is really just FlyLo’s alter ego), but then there are… More »

Stream Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks Enter The Slasher House

Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks – “Little Fang” Video

Let’s hear it for literalism! “Little Fang” is the name of the first single from Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, the Animal Collective co-leader’s new band with Dirty Projectors’ Angel Deradoorian and Ponytail’s Jeremy Hyman. And so it makes perfect sense that the song’s video would concern the adventures of a vampire cat. Longtime Animal Collective… More »

Lushlife – “She’s A Buddhist, I’m A Cubist (Remix Feat. Angel Deradoorian, Cities Aviv, G-Side, Big Baby Gandhi, Deniro Farrar, KDz Kenny Dennis)”

Here’s a remix of Philly rapper Lushlife’s Plateau Vision cut “She’s A Buddhist, I’m A Cubist,” a track that’s given a lush, spirited reimagination thanks to help from folks like Angel Deradoorian, Big Baby Gandhi, and G-Side. It’s also about as twice as long as the original, which also features like-minded voyager Cities Aviv. Stream… 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 »

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 »
