Off the back of the debut album The Expanding Flower Planet and the previously announced FRIDAY NIGHTS AT NGV during Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei series performance comes more dates in these here Antipodean gardens.

"The Expanding Flower Planet feels like an album full of trap doors, where a single, unexpected sound can deposit you into new worlds. Deradoorian explores krautrock rhythms, microtonal tunings, and various Eastern scales, including those of her Armenian heritage."

Like an ancient familiar... glowing and warping, burning brightly and floating gracefully, permanently transcending. 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.

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. A member of Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks, the voice on Flying Lotus' Siren Song, as well as collaborations with Vampire Weekend, Bjork, Matmos, the Roots et al. Her first song collection, 2009's Mind Raft EP elicited praise... The Fader hailed her 'zen weed energy' and 'moody dervish spirals'. Angel Deradoorian's debut album The Expanding Flower Planet is "full of unusual juxtapositions: '60s psych and Georgian polyphony; classical minimalism and laser-show maximalism; dulcimer and church organ. But her voice is the thread that holds it all together, and once the album has finished, tied off with a ribbon of wailing trombone, it's her voice you remember most."
