Cruel Diagonals

Oakland’s Megan Mitchell wears many musical hats, as a field recorder and audio archivist, as the publisher of the Many Many Women index of women/trans/non-binary composers, as a DJ, and as a musician recording and performing as Cruel Diagonals.

Mitchell’s debut Cruel Diagonals LP, Disambiguation, comes out in July, and you can listen to a first preview, “Render Arcane,” below. As you’ll hear on the song, the artist adeptly draws from ambient and experimental forms to create a rhythmic, captivating composition.

Disambiguation comes out on Drawing Room Records on July 13, 2018.
