Der Seltene Fang

My new solo album Already Drowning has just been announced for release April 15 2013 from Gizeh Records. This album is a much more structured than previous releases, with each track featuring a guest vocalist, and is something of a song-cycle inspired by myths and folktales of female water spirits like Mélusine, Lorelei, and Rusalka. The first and title track is streaming here:

And if you visit the Gizeh Records site, you can download it as part of their new releases sampler.

Clara Engel sings on the title track. The other guest vocalists are: Jessica Bailiff, Valérie Niederoest & Maude Oswald (from Toboggan), Joanna Kupnicka (from The Cold Hand), Geneviève Castrée (aka Ô Paon), Liz Hysen (from Picastro), and Carla Bozulich (from Evangelista, The Geraldine Fibbers).
