Download Mercy - Benoit Pioulard - Hymnal

As the title of his fourth Benoit Pioulard album suggests, Meluch was inspired by the religious iconography and churches he saw during his travels, and they seem to have helped him focus the transcendent drones and delicate folk already present in his music.

Throughout Hymnalhe artfully combines and separates these sounds; as on Lastedthese songs sound more rooted and substantial than on his early albums, where it seemed like a slight breeze could send them spinning in any direction. Songs such as "Hawkeye," where the melody's minor-key descent resolves into major-key bliss in a way that's equally subtle and surprising, show that his songwriting continues to mature while retaining the nimble fragility that made it unique as on the lovely "Excave".

There are also nods to tradition in "Reliquary"'s sacred music-inspired harmonies or the gorgeous, Nick Drake -like chamber folk of "Litiya," but Meluch isn't hidebound to recapturing any particular sound or era. However, his biggest steps forward are on Hymnal 's ambient tracks. Where previously they might have been pretty aural palate cleansers in between his Mercy - Benoit Pioulard - Hymnal structured pieces, here they take on lives of their own and resonate with newfound intimacy and intensity.

And then there's "Knell," which blends church bells, chirping birds and other found sounds with pristine electronics that suggest the outdoors I Am Jack - Stockholm Subside just as sacred Mercy - Benoit Pioulard - Hymnal any cathedral. Meluch 's work as Benoit Pioulard has been remarkably consistent since the beginning, and while the changes he makes from album to album have been small, Hymnal 's serene beauty may make it his most sublime music yet.

    The fourth album from Benoit Pioulard (real name Thomas Meluch) was written over the course of a year spent pondering religious iconography and architecture. This preoccupation with faith translates into both lush ambience and carefully crafted pop music pulled into strange shapes.

    Jan 08,  · I’m certainly not advocating that Pioulard chooses between one recording approach or another, I’m suggesting perhaps a sound somewhere in the middle, with the vocals higher in the mix and a fuller sound. Hymnal – The Remixes. Original songs can find new life in covers or remixes.
