Angel Deradoorian

Deradoorian (Angel Deradoorian of Dirty Projectors) is set to release her debut solo EP, The Mind Raft, on May 5th via Lovepump United Records.

To celebrate, Angel will be playing a CD release show at the Cake Shop on Tuesday, May 5th. We have a pair of tickets to giveaway. Details on how to win below.

She'll also be sharing a bill with Chairlift, Takka Takka, and The Secret Life of Sofia at the Bell House on Sunday, May 10th. Tickets for that are on sale.

In addition to her playing with Dirty Projectors while at SXSW, Angel also performed her solo material at the fest. And she discussed the new record with Austinist...

Austinist: Was the recording of Mind Raft all done at home? Do you have orchestral ambitions for your first full-length?

Angel: Mind Raft was recorded in a studio space in Bushwick. Many of the drum recordings were done in other studio spaces. It was kind of sporadically put together, but it all fit in somehow. You mean using orchestral instruments? I don't know if I've gotten that far quite yet in my mind. I'm still working on the concept at this point and understanding how to write songs.

Though she's predominantly known as 1/4 of Dirty Projectors (now 1/6 with addition of bassist Nat Baldwin and vocalist Haley Dekle), Angel also sings and performs with other bands at times. On May 8th she gets to play with Bjork. Sometimes she's a member of Department of Eagles. Videos of Angel playing with Fake Male Voice and Inlets (and ticket give-away details) below...

For your chance to win a pair of tickets to the Deradoorian CD release show on May 5th, e-mail BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: Angel). Include your first and last name. The winner will be picked at random.

Just wondering on the DP track "Knotty Pines" from Dark was the night. Which girl in DP is singing?

I think her!

is this her real name?

I'm pretty sure Amber is singing the main vocals on "Knotty Pine". Angel's voice is a little deeper.

P.S. Angel is my dream girl.
