Benoit Pioulard "Margin"

Benoit Pioulard "Margin"
As previously reported, ambient artist Benoît Pioulard (aka Thomas Meluch) will release his next LP, Hymnal, on March 4 through Kranky. The due date is over a month away, but Meluch is giving us a sneak preview via a stream of album track "Margin."

It's a pleasantly washed-out adventure, with rustic acoustic strums, far-reaching synths and Meluch's soft and breezy vocals settling nicely against a beat that conjures a rhythmically-inclined robot scraping its claws across a washboard. You can sample the futuristic wagon trail tune down below.
