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, this album from Pantaleimon is another great collection of hypnotic, magical, and understated songs that Andria 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 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 (Vetiver), Jay Darlington (Oasis, Kula Shaker), and 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, sounding like nothing else around.
