It’s been eight years since Angel Deradoorian abandoned her stint with Dirty Projectors to pursue a solo career. Since, she’s made several guest appearances for artists like Flying Lotus, Brandon Flowers and Rostam (who, little-known fact, was also a member of the Projectors alongside Ezra Koenig way back in the day). Tuesday, Deradoorian announced her first full-length since signing to ANTI-, Find the Sun, the follow-up to her 2015 album The Expanding Flower Plant. The record is set for release on May 22.
ALASKALASKA are an art-pop 6-piece from London. They make beautiful, groove-laden music that seamlessly blends jazz, disco, funk and R&B into a bold and playful sound uniquely their own; synthetic beats play alongside live drums, delayed guitars and shimmering saxophones to create something musically rich and delightfully intricate.
Band leader and principle vocalist Lucinda twists brooding and introspective lyrics – akin to the words of Arthur Russell – into infectious melodies reminiscent of Warpaint, Dirty Projectors or Talk Talk, which demand repeat listens and could as easily soundtrack a wistful evening alone as they could a party. They ‘ve just shared a new song: ‘Meateater.’
The virtuoso vocalist Amber Coffman is a longtime member of the Dirty Projectors, but she wasn’t a part of that band’s recent song “Keep Your Name.” And now, she’s gone solo, signing to Columbia and planning the release of a solo album called City Of No Reply. She wrote and recorded the whole album in Los Angeles, where she’s been living for the past three years. And she’s just shared the video for its first single “All To Myself,” a stately, slow-swaying ballad that sounds like a very 2016 version of an oldies-radio standard.
Vocalista i baixista de Dirty Projectors i sol·licitada per participar en projectes com Flying Lotus, Angel Deradoorian es va llançar a l’aventura en solitari amb ‘The expanding flower planet’, un treball que fon art-rock i sons d’Orient Mitjà i amb el qual la novaiorquesa se situa en l’òrbita d’artistes com Björk. Ella serà l’encarregada de tancar l’escenari de l’Apolo per on abans passaran el joveníssim productor de Liverpool SG Lewis, que s’ha inventat un camí per viatjar de James Blake a Disclosure i CARLA, germana de Joana Serrat, que despunta com a delicada creadora de synth-pop al seu disc de debut, ‘Night thoughts’ (2016) Aquesta nit a la sala Apolo.
