Benoît Pioulard – Margin
The swirl and ebb of this lo-fi tune carries you adrift into the land of Benoît Pioulard (aka Thomas Meluch). Multi-instrumentalist Mulech has created an emotive song where the lyrics and guitar bleed into each other, but are carried ever onwards by the melodic synth line. He has a penchant for recording his own field sounds, which is evident in the opening, which could be perhaps the clacking of a bicycle wheel being ridden across his current homeland of Southern England.
Fans of experimental folk music will be looking forward to Benoît Pioulard’s upcoming LP Hymnal, available on March 4 through Chicago’s label Kransky.
