Benoit Pioulard: Seize/Marre 7"

Benoit Pioulard: Seize/Marre 7″

Former WCBN-er Thomas Meluch returns to the 7″ format with this lovely little snapshot. Each copy comes with a postcard, and the music has a similar captured-in-time feeling, especially since the songs were based on writings and recordings from the beginning of the century. “Seize” is a light, pleasant ambient folk tune, but the real treat is “Marre”, a thick cloud of scratchy loops and heavy longing. Also, it’s worth mentioning that this is on an Italian label called Backwards, not the Backwards Records from Denver whose artist Morlox I just reviewed today (or the related Backwards NW from Seattle).
