‘Ember’ is the follow up to ‘If I (Was)’ by Pantaleimon, (AKA singer Andria Degens), and is the second single to be lifted from the brand new album ‘The Butterfly Ate The Pearl’. The new single includes an exclusive alternative mix by Hugo Race and Franco Naddei ‘Ember (‘The Glow Mix)’. Available from Grass Girl Music and iTunes

Featured on this track are James Blackshaw (guitar & organ), Steve Finnerty (guitar), Jay Darlington (Mellotron & Moog), Paul Phillips (Lap steel guitar), Otto Hauser (Vetiver) on drums, and Dan Price (bass).

The Butterfly Ate The Pearl was written and recorded during 2011/12 in her home studio, and co-produced with Hugo Race (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Fatalists) and is being released by Grass Girl Music, distributed by Forced Exposure in the United States and Cargo in the UK.

The Butterfly Ate The Pearl is a more psychedelic offering than Pantaleimon’s previous recordings, a marked artistic progression, and her most accomplished work to date. Besides writing and recording the new material Degens performs on a diverse range of instruments including guitar, keyboard, Indian harmonium, “treated” Appalachian dulcimers, bass, pedal board, vibraphone, bells, tambourine and sansula; she also provides samples, loops, and assorted fx. In addition, she’s brought together an eclectic array of renowned musicians to complement her work and insure that each track reaches its full potential: Hugo Race (Bad Seeds), “Bonnie Prince Billy” Will Oldham, James Blackshaw, Otto Hauser (Vetiver, Espers), Jay Darlington (Oasis, Kula Shaker), and Steve Finnerty (Alabama 3), to name but a few. The end result is a cinematic soundscape showcasing her gorgeous, heartbreaking vocals.

The new album is available from Grass Girl Music on CD/LP and on ITunes …
