Benoît Pioulard 

When: Sat., March 23, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $8

During the last decade, subdued sound explorer Benoît Pioulard has worked largely in layers, surfacing fragments of songs in webs of field recordings or building magisterial drones from strangely interconnected elements. Pioulard (or Thomas Meluch, the musician behind the moniker) recorded the new Hymnal after a move to England and the death of three grandparents. It maintains the heavily textured element of his past, as though you're always finding these songs through a sea of scrims. But Meluch's ostensibly grown more comfortable with letting the core of these pieces survive—the pop moments here are resplendent, the long and ecclesiastical hums uninterrupted. With Heads on Sticks and Feltbattery.—Grayson Currin
