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.
Mestre Bergman presents today a new artist. We know Angel Deradoorian for as the vocalist-bassist of Dirty Projectors and for her close collaboration with projects such as Flying Lotus, now however the artist is going solo with “The Expanding Flower Planet”, her debut album after the EP “Mind Raft”. Without having moved far away from the musical orbit of the mother-ship, the Brooklyn artist embarks on a fascinating journey between art-rock, Native American rhythms and the sounds of the Middle East without losing sight of the melody. She will be in the Primavera Club festival.
