"Mercy Oceans is the long-anticipated second full-length from Andria Degens. The album follows the critically acclaimed Cloudburst EP released earlier this year, and features Baby Dee, Isobel Campbell, Keith Wood (Hush Arbors), and John Contreras.
Mercy Oceans is an album of exceptional beauty and depth. All ten tracks are stunningly captivating. The cd comes packaged in a beautiful digipak with a full-color booklet containing lyrics, along with artwork by Beth Carter and photography by Cam Archer." midheaven
"Pantaleimon is based in Hastings, southern England, but the sparse clarity of her music as Pantaleimon seems to exist in its own unique, indefinable space.... Its vivid simplicity is, in its own quiet way, quite stunning." Tom Ridge, The Wire
"... 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 Collective man Steven R. Smith or possibly Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance), but what Degens has done is bring a feminine touch to the masses of male-dominated free folk." Boomkat
