Boomkat Product Review:
Pantaleimon is the pseudonym of one Andria Degens, and unsurprisingly (given that she's releasing on Durtro Jnana) she's a Current 93 collaborator. 'Cloudburst' is her first release since 2002's acclaimed 'Change My World' and is the proper release of a cd which came initially packaged with a hand-printed book late last year. History lesson over though, what's important about 'Cloudburst' is to take it in without any pretentiousness or pre-conceptions as Degens makes music which is so effortlessly gorgeous it almost defies belief. There is an icy simplicity to her compositions, a fragility or frailty maybe, and this gives them a soft, melancholy feel which makes them almost impossible to forget. For some reason I am reminded of Jewelled Antler Colletive man Steven R. Smith or possibly fellow Current 93 collaborator Ben Chasny, but what Degens has done is bring a feminine touch to the masses of male-dominated free folk. I think it's this femininity is what makes 'Cloudburst' stand out among her contemporaries, there is a brightness and an honesty, and much like Colleen did to the grim world of bedroom electronica, Degens has a same take on this masculine world. Apparently there's an album due soon, but this EP is all totally exclusive material so the only chance you will get to hear it is here! Utterly entrancing stuff, buy.
