Last Year's Listenables


As a continuance of the seeming theme of phantasmal, atmospheric music that's being posted, and also to keep the flow of my "Last Year's Lovlies" going, I'm gonna lob up a track by Benoît Pioulard.

Benoît is the moniker of one Thomas Meluch, a multi-instrumentalist from Michigan and veteran of several bands (including the blink-and-you'll-miss-them Esmae, an interesting post rock group). The music is similar to Grizzly Bear in it's sonic palette and emotional context, and is perfect for listening to whilst wallowing in the back bedroom writing rubbish on the internet. If you need a soundtrack to a late night think-and-drink session (do other people do that?) then look no further than 2006's Précis, easily one of the year's highlights.

Anyway, here's Patter - Benoît Pioulard...

Ah hell, why not take Sous la Plage - Benoît Pioulard ...

Depends what you mean by think-and-drink.

Drink and have a think about what you're doing (or not doing) with your life. You know that kind of thing.
