Sunday, August 2

Angel Deradoorian has a top candidate’s CV in indie rock, playing bass and belting pitch perfect harmonies in her former band Dirty Projectors and in her current gig with card-carrying Animal Collective member Avey Tare. Hers is a voice (and a name) that most singers can only dream about in the shower, a nimble thing capable of a piano’s range and an actor’s emotion.

On August 21, Deradoorian releases her sophomore solo album The Expanding Flower Planet on art house hip-hop label Anticon. With “The Eye,” a first peak from the record, Deradoorian picks up the rhythm by its collar, a pulsating, Kraut-friendly beat that gives the tune its considerable heart. As usual, the singer takes a savant’s approach to melody, separating her advice and rhythm into odd intervals and brilliant corners. With We Leave At Midnight, Casual Strangers, Vision Dubbed. $8, 9pm, K23 Gallery, 702 Fredericksburg Rd, (210) 776-5635
