Nightlands
Nightlands is the recording project of Philadelphia-based multi-instrumentalist Dave Hartley. The music he creates in his bedroom is itself a bed of delicate, chiming strings and bubbling synths beneath a blanket of choral vocal arrangements. It's dreamy in the literal sense -- the seeds for the album were sown when Hartley began archiving musical ideas that occurred in his sleep with a simple bedside tape recorder. As a result his debut album Forget the Mantra is, in essence, a field recording of Hartley's dreams -- a travel journal through pop music and a collection of psych-hymns from the first human lunar colony. The songs sound both huge and intimate, breathy and cavernous like massive echoes of a faraway concert. It's the big, shadow music from just across the lake.
Deradoorian - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Deradoorian
Deradoorian is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter hailing from Northern California. As a child, she focused on classical piano, which became the catalyst for her exploration in other genres of music. At age 15 she left high school to pursue a musical career. After traveling around the country in several bands, her heart led her to Brooklyn, NY, where she joined Dirty Projectors. During her tenure with the band they released the critically acclaimed records Rise Above and Bitte Orca, and worked with several talented and respected artists such as Bjork & David Byrne. In this hectic, but exciting time, Angel released her first solo ep under the title Mind Raft on the record label Lovepump United in 2009. In 2012, Deradoorian left the band to pursue her own project. She is currently living in Los Angeles and working on an album inspired by singing and the space in which sound can reside.
