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.

- Seize / Marre by Benoît Pioulard
I can just imagine how long Benoit Pioulard spends messing around with tapes. His music always sounds like it has been fed through some wheezing dusty old machine only to emerge 25% more sun dappled. Although I enjoy his ambient compositions as on the recent 'Sonnet', I've missed his more vocal led material over recent years so I'm pleased to report that 'Seize' is a lovely piece of underground indie/folk with clattering things, woody acoustic guitars and that lovely voice. It sounds like it has been dredged up from the bottom of a peat bog. There's another song too 'Marre' which I'm yet to hear. It all comes in lovely '94 style lo-fi 7" packaging with bonus postcard.
