More Info

" "The Butterfly Ate The Pearl" is the follow up to 2008's remix and collaboration collection "Heart Of the Sun" and features nine new tracks.

Co-produced with Hugo Race, the new album is another great collection of hypnotic, magical and understated songs that Degens has become known for, but with "The Butterfly Ate The Pearl" there is a more psychedelic feel and a real progression of sound and it is without doubt the most accomplished release to date.

The multi-talented Andria Degens not only provides vocals, but plays a diverse range of instruments and effects including distorted and delayed dulcimers, guitar, keyboard, Indian harmonium, bass, samples, loops, pedal board, fx, vibra, bells, tambourine and sansula.

She also brings together an array of eclectic musicians to elevate the dream- WILL OLDHAM (BONNIE PRINCE BILLY), JAMES BLACKSHAW, Otto Hauser (VERTIVER), Jay Darlington (OASIS, KULA SHAKER), Steve Finnerty (ALABAMA 3), to name a few.

The result is a cinematic soundscape, a journey, through terrains, both familiar and unknown, with her gorgeous and heartbreaking voice leading the way, and sounding like nothing else around." [label info]
