Lasted (Explicit)

Lasted by Benoit Pioulard
Released: Oct 2010
Label: Kranky
On his third album, Portland, Ore.'s Benoit Pioulard (Thomas Meluch) continues to refine his idiosyncratic style, fusing field recordings and ambient atmospherics with acoustic guitars and folk-leaning vocals. Running through 14 songs in just 40 minutes, the album nevertheless feels unhurried, balancing textural sketches with fleshed-out songs like "Shouting Distance," "Tie" and "Ailleurs," whose aching hush recalls Jose Gonzalez and, more distantly, Nick Drake. A beautiful record, sometimes overwhelmingly so, Lasted is the best thing Pioulard has done, and a highlight in the Kranky catalog.
