seattle producer and songwriter benoît pioulard (aka thomas meluch) has been following his very own path through the calm scenery of ambient, shoegaze and electronica for over ten years now. following the release of "sonnet", his fifth lp for portland’s kranky label just a few months ago, meluch returns to morr music with four shimmeringly beautiful ambient tracks.

the sound of the fifth benoit pioulard full length is lush and verdant, a temperate rain forest of ear ecstasy that reflects the environment surrounding the artist. a mostly instrumental work, it is an adept melding of song and sound, melody and texture, the intangible and the palpable, that in an abstract sense recalls the more fractured and loose end of the 70's krautrock movement.
