I missed the solo performance Deradoorian (aka former Dirty Projectors member Angel Deradoorian) gave last summer at Constellation, but I've been waiting to hear more solo material from her ever since she dropped the superb Mind Raft EP (Lovepump United) six long years ago. She's finally releasing The Expanding Flower Planet (Anticon), her first full-length, in August, and based on the couple spins I've given it, it sure seems worth the wait. As you can hear on "A Beautiful Woman," which is today's 12 O'Clock Track, she deftly blends propulsive psychedelia with a mysterious, infectious melody. There's a driving motorik groove, spooky wordless vocal flourishes, woozy organ patterns, and an utterly seductive tunefulness—it sounds classic and elusive at the same time. You can hear it below.
