Eternal Recurrence is an EP by Deradoorian, a former member of Dirty Projectors.[7] Recorded between 2015 and 2016, it was released on Anticon on October 6, 2017.[8]

Reception[edit]

At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, Eternal Recurrence received an average score of 72 based on 5 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[1]

Paul Simpson of AllMusic gave Eternal Recurrence 3.5 stars out of 5, calling it "a fine, thoughtful piece of ambient drone-folk that is as challenging as it is assuring."[2] He said, "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."[2] Scott A. Gray of Exclaim! gave Eternal Recurrence a 7 out of 10, stating that "[Eternal Recurrence] pulls back on the rhythmic side of her intercontinental folkloric psychedelia in favour of something more meditative, untethered and texturally focused."[3]
