Benoît Pioulard
Slow spark, soft spoke

I love you Benoît, and if that's quite alright, I love you Benoît. Yes, Norman favourite Benoît Pioulard finally has a follow-up to The Benoît Pioulard Listening Matter at the ready. That LP was a wonderful collection of folksy songs reminiscent of Jose Gonzalez and the like, washed out in the usual crackling haze of his more typical drone music. He's off to a good start with the alliterative title Slow spark, soft spoke, which would surely impress an English Literature teacher. Here he returns to the profound, melancholic textures of his drone music, offering slow-releasing lo-fi for you to chime along with your feelings to. It already came out on tape so you might have already heard it -- but if not, snatch up this gem.

Ant’lrd & Benoît Pioulard
Deck Amber

Benoît Pioulard (a real favourite of ours: check out the Norman Podcast he did for us a few years back) teams up with Ant’lrd for a double cassette serving of gorgeous decay music, made with synths, tape loops, and a sense of wonder. A solo piece from each artist, and then seven hearty slabs of collaboration. Luscious materials, out on Sounds et al.

Gailes
Seventeen Words

Two top-of-the-line melodic dronemakers team up to form Gailes: that’s Benoit Pioulard and Rafael Anton Irisarri. Seventeen Words was recorded during heavy winter times, and it has the special ability to sound both cold (the wind, the snow drifts) and warm (the thick walls and the fire). This is a vinyl release on Ba Da Bing!

Benoît Pioulard
Sonnet

An intimate album of warm melodic droning. Benoit Pioulard started the process of making this album by recording unexpectedly musical tones from animal or mechanical sources (eg. extractor fans), and then transposing those sounds to his guitar. Released on almost-identically-priced vinyl and CD by the ever-loved Kranky label.
  • Vinyl LP (KRANK193LP)

Benoît Pioulard
The Benoît Pioulard Listening Matter

On his sixth release for Kranky Benoît Pioulard weaves delicate candyfloss pop melodies through a hazy wooden shack in the sun setting. Reflective and at peace pop songs that let you just take a minute for yourself. Delicately plucked guitars and satisfyingly found sound-like percussion takes you away from it all.

Benoît Pioulard
Seize / Marre

Thomas Meluch, better known as Benoît Pioulard, is always busy making something: after 2015’s Sonnet and Noyaux, he’s now bringing us a new 7”. Seize / Marre is limited to 300 pressings, all of which signed by the artist. Seize drifts along peacefully, with acoustic guitars drenched in layers of gentle noise, whereas Marre is more about lush soundscapes, built with slowly expanding pads. Très calme.

Being / Benoît Pioulard / Symbol / Dead Voices On Air
Rail Cables - Spring Selection 2015

Spring Selection 2015, the latest release from the Rail Cables label, presents the listener with tracks from a number of different artists: Being, Benoit Pioulard, This Will Destroy You member Symbol, and ex-Zoviet*France member Dead Voices On Air to round the whole thing off. Quite a roster for one release eh?

Noyaux

Noyaux follows up Benoît Pioulard’s recent release for ambient overlords Kranky with this new full-length on Morr Music. Four tracks stretch themselves out over the record, each one relating to a family member. I guess Pioulard must like his family, as these are beautifully warm pieces of droning ambience.

Benoît Pioulard
Hymnal Remixes

Benoit Pioulard is the alter ego of American singer / songwriter Thomas Meluch. Releasing music prolifically since 2001, 2013's 'Hymnal' is his most recent recording. Here it is given the remix treatment by a plethora of mix magicians, lending a new vibe to Pioulard's experimental folk sound. Double CD on Lost Tribe Sound.

Foxes in Fiction + Benoit Pioulard
Ground Glass

The warming ambient of Benoit Pioulard meets the delicate and unobtrusive dream pop of Foxes In Fiction for a 7" of beautiful music that doesn't want to be a bother. Rather than divulge their music in the standard split format, they exchanged sound clips until their collaborative work built into these two longform pieces.
