PANTALEIMON / Heart of the Sun (2008)

Pantaleimon blend simple, acoustic folk melodies with a fragile, dreamlike, Lynchian drone.  It’s the sound dew makes as it drips from graveyard flower petals.  Or, if you don’t like this kind of thing you can call it boring hippy music.
It’s slightly haunting in places but Andria Degens’ voice, the warm harp, piano, and cello keep it from becoming too dark.  This release is a “remixed and realised” version of the Mercy Oceans (2007) album by a number of guest artists.  It also adds four new tracks (5, 8, 10 and 14).

Songs of Note: At Dawn (Vogel); All The Birds (Melting Canvas)

3 remixed Idyls out of 5
