    First studio album by Deradoorian, a former member of Dirty Projectors, released on Anticon.

    This record cover seems to use one of the many poor versions of Ernst Schneidler’s classic Legende (1937). The E and P — which are descending in the original — were scaled down to fit on the baseline and consequently appear too light. The long descender of h has been axed, p is inauthentic and looks like a mirrored q. What a feeble rendition!
