benoit pioulard - hymnal remixes (2cd)


ARTIST // benoit pioulard
LABEL // lost tribe sound (us)
CAT // lts017cd


This double disc album comes housed in a Japanese style digi-wallet made of extra heavy uncoated stock with matte disc artwork. Limited to 450 copies.

Seattle-based Benot Pioulard has become a stalwart of Chicago's kranky imprint over the course of four full-lengths, the most recent of which is Hymnal. Lost Tribe Sound is pleased to release Hymnal Remixes, a compendium of interpretations, constructions, reductions and destructions.

Hymnal arose from a year spent in the UK and on mainland Europe, during which time religious architecture became an unexpected muse; the album's songs convey a reverent tone through layers of analogue warmth, balancing ambient pieces with subdued pop tunes.

On Remixes, roll call yields the likes of Loscil (kranky), The Remote Viewer (City Center Offices/Moteer), Field Rotation (Facture/ Denovali), and Pioulard himself, as well as Lost Tribe regulars William Ryan Fritch, Graveyard Tapes, Part Timer, and Cock & Swan. The collection is loosely split in half by stylistic direction, the more rhythm-oriented first disc balanced by the ambient leanings of the second. Each entry is a unique study of its original version, and together they create a multi-faceted & radiant whole.
