•    Vocalist, multi~instrumentalist and sonic visionary Angel Deradoorian has never shied away from testing aural and conceptual boundaries in her work. On her last album, The Expanding Flower Planet, Deradoorian led listeners through a kaleidoscopic journey that explored new rhythmic ideas culled from ancient traditions. Yet her latest album, the entrancing and seismic Eternal Recurrence, is unlike anything she’s ever recorded. The stark album, which predominantly features Deradoorian’s riveting vocals co~mingling with a handful of instruments, is a testament to an artist who found new depths both within herself and in her process through allowing herself to be driven entirely by instinct.
•    Right before The Expanding Flower Planet was released in 2015, Deradoorian decamped to Big Sur for a formative ten days and began crafting what would become Eternal Recurrence, out October 6, 2017 on Anticon. She then completed the album with co~producer Ben Greenberg after a move to a remote upstate New York town in 2016. The extremities of the California region — where mountain meets sea and life comingles with death — reverberates on “Mountainside,” a texturally lush tune about learning to feel comfort in being alone, and mourning the dissolution of a certain kind of love.
•    Fittingly, Eternal Recurrence, brims with meditative affirmations that mimic cycles, planetary and otherwise. The collection of songs are woven together by structurally abstract “thoughts in sound,” as Deradoorian puts it. It breathes through drones, synthesizers and vocal acrobatics peripherally inspired by the music of Alice Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry. The stirring songs comprising Eternal Recurrence also probe an uninhibited form of expression, particularly within the warbles of “Love Arise” and the watery underworld of emotion on the instrumental piece “Ausar Temple.”
•    At times the process was a struggle, because it involved reckoning with the past and resisting the present in order to rebuild herself for the future. Many realizations came into sharp focus from those isolated times, like the song “Mirrorman,” a stark near~limerick and deft study in intervals. The reflective song circles the theme of individuation — specifically, the idea of becoming holistic by honoring both the feminine and masculine elements we each carry within us. Meanwhile “Return~Transcend,” the eight~minute opus on the album, is an affirmation of both being one with the universe and at peace with the unknown. Fotka uživatele Ben Tais Amundssen.
•    Honoring and extending gratitude towards friends, and their individual strengths, became crucial to constructing Eternal Recurrence, as well. Deradoorian wrote the entrancing vocal harmonies of “Nia In the Dark” for a friend, the Los Angeles~based musician Nia Andrews. “We had these conversations where she’s never really felt seen in certain ways, and I know a lot of people don’t feel seen,” Deradoorian explains. “But they do so much and they inspire so many people around them. So it’s kind of talking about like, ‘You may not be seen by all, but these are all the things I see in you, and I see what you’re doing and how you affect everyone and you’re such an important thread in people’s lives.”
•    The transcendent “Love Arise,” which opens Eternal Recurrence, was also written as an ode to a friend, Nai Palm of Hiatus Kaiyote. Yet the meditative song — in which Deradoorian sings “love’s the only thing keeping me alive — also functions as a kind of underlying thesis for Eternal Recurrence, an album whose wonders unfurl further with every listen. “It is an affirmation of calling in love when you’re alone and afraid, essentially,” Deradoorian says. “Or just freaking out, and calming yourself down and remembering why you live and what you live for. And for me, it’s love.” Fotka uživatele Ben Tais Amundssen.                                             © •★• St Vitus, 25 Jan15, Credit: Emily Tan
AllMusic Review by Paul Simpson;   Score: ***½ 
•    Angel Deradoorian’ s second Anticon release is vastly different from her first, as well as anything she’ s recorded with other artists, including Dirty Projectors and Avey Tare. While 2015’s The Expanding Flower Planet mixed billowing vocal harmonies with loping, hypnotic rhythms, alternately recalling Krautrock, new wave, and exotica, Eternal Recurrence does away with drums entirely, focusing on Deradoorian’s ethereal vocals and soft, enveloping keyboard drones, with the occasional presence of flutes, bells, and other acoustic instruments. The songs are spiritual as well as personal, meditating on the vitality of love during the song’s opener, where Deradoorian states that “Love’s the only thing keeping me alive.” The lengthy “Return~Transcend” finds her in full flight, with her mantra~like vocals floating over an entrancing drone and a ghostly chorus of multi~tracked vocals. The lovely ambient pop tune “Nia in the Dark” was written for Deradoorian’s friend Nia Andrews, assuring her that she is making a difference in people’ s lives, even if she sometimes feels invisible or unappreciated. “Mirrorman,” while still musically soft and tranquil, is lyrically a bit more striking, ruminating on the destruction of one’s ego: “My mirror man can’t die until he kills himself.” The release clocks in at less than half an hour, but its meditative nature transcends time, and it feels like a complete work rather than a minor batch of non~album tracks. Eternal Recurrence is a fine, thoughtful piece of ambient drone~folk that is as challenging as it is assuring.  •★•    https://www.allmusic.com/

•    Angel Deradoorian struck out on her own two years ago with her solo debut, The Expanding Flower Planet. Now, the former Dirty Projectors member release a new mini~album, Eternal Recurrence, via Anticon. Recorded and released under her moniker Deradoorian, the six~track collection originates from a 10~day camping trip to Big Sur in 2015.
•    The album was then completed with co~producer Ben Greenberg in 2016 after moving to a remote upstate New York town. Deradoorian says it’s woven together by abstract “thoughts in sound” and “breathes” through drones, synthesizers and vocal acrobatics peripherally inspired by the music of Alice Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry.   •★•    https://consequenceofsound.net/
