Angel Deradoorian
You’re familiar with Angel Deradoorian’s voice. As the former bassist, keyboardist and vocalist for Dirty Projectors, her levitating vocals buoyed the Brooklyn-based group. She’s been a member of Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, sang on Flying Lotus’ “Siren Song,” and has collaborated with Vampire Weekend, Bjork, Matmos, the Roots, et al.

Her first song collection, 2009’s Mind Raft EP elicited praise from Pitchfork for being “passionate and lovingly crafted.” The Fader hailed her “zen weed energy” and “moody dervish spirals.” Her debut LP, The Expanding Flower Planet reflects a remarkable creative journey.

Others imitate the past and others divine inspiration and transmit it elsewhere. Deradoorian embodies the latter idea, synthesizing faint hints of Alice Coltrane and Can, Terry Riley, and Dorothy Ashby. A new world springs from ancient traditions—with East Indian, Middle Eastern, traditional Japanese music and Native American rhythms aligned with Deradoorian’s singular orbit. The songs glide through a odyssey of self-exploration—glowing and warping, burning brightly and floating gracefully, permanently transcending.
Angel is also a member of the band Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks.
Sam Muglia
Sam is a student of the shakuhachi, a Japanese end blown flute. He has appeared on albums with Xander Duell, and Anand Wilder and Maxwell Kardon’s rock opera “break line the musical”.
He has also worked in on stage live collaboration, with Derradoorian, Delicate Steve, Fang Island and Honey.
Greg Fox
“Good drummers aren’t uncommon. Great ones are. We still mourn Keith Moon of the Who and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin as the jolly bashers of modernity. Here comes the future, they seemed to be telling us with their sensational ka-blammo. Together, they popularized the notion that, in rock-and-roll, a drummer’s unsolemn duty is to establish a sense of time while happily smashing it to bits. Greg Fox reactivates that idea for the Information Age.”

-Chris Richards, Washington Post
Eartheater
Eartheater (multi-instrumentalist Alexandra Drewchin) creates a strain of free-associative electronic pop spiked with experiments in the drone and noise traditions. As the frontwoman of the ecstatic avant-psych ensemble Guardian Alien, Drewchin dives into extended improvisations in pursuit of the fearless release of emotions and sounds beyond the capacity of premeditation. On her debut solo full-length Metalepsis, Eartheater traces the opposite trajectory: the deliberate distillation of voice, synths, guitar, and studio production techniques into cyborg compositions teeming with crystalline details.
