Pantaleimon - Cloudburst [Durtro/Jnana - 2007]

Pantaleimon is Andria Degens, a floating member of Current 93. As you might expect, given the afrorementioned band's sound as of late, this music is folk influenced and pensive. Degens does however, take her own path, and avoids merely aping her peers.

The first three tracks are sparse intrumentals played on Appalachian dulcimer and bouzouki. There's plenty of open space and clarity within these recordings, which makes for a pleasant and relaxing listen. The last track, Numinosum, is an eight minute drone piece with some nice near whispered vocals over the top.

The only fault with this EP is that it veers a little close to New Age coffee-house music because it is a bit mannered. The fact that it clocks in at around twenty minutes benefits it though, because it doesn't hang around long enough to become cloying.
