Deradoorian
Find The Sun (LP)

[ Anti- / 2 LP ]

Release Date: Friday 23 October 2020

Find The Sun is the sophomore album from former Dirty Projectors member Angel Deradoorian.

Inspired by the freedom of Can and the singing style of Damo Suzuki as well as the influence of Indian spirituality on free jazz masters like Pharoah Sanders and Sun Ra, Deradoorian gravitates to transportive, shamanic sounds on this record, wielding bells, flutes, and gongs in service of a rock record guided by the spirits.

These songs started as sketches, later moulded into stronger concepts during a summer spent on the beach in the Rockaways, lying in the sand and absorbing the sun's rays, playing meditation bowls, writing lyrics and talking about music with Deradoorian's friend and percussionist Samer Ghadry. Along with Ghadry's frequent collaborator Dave Harrington, they would take those songs across the country to Marin County, California's Panoramic House, an analogue studio with a live room with wall-sized windows that gaze out upon the Pacific Ocean from atop Mt. Tamalpais. The room's energy and spaciousness serves as the band's fourth member, its ancient beams and cavernous ceilings colouring the drum tracks with an innate sense of space.
