Benoît Pioulard - Temper

Benoît Pioulard's second album, Temper, picks up where his phenomenal debut, Précis, left off. Many were stunned by the dreaming ambient soundscapes that Pioulard, the nom de guerre of Thomas Meluch, produced; his hazy vocals complemented the instrumentals, creating one of the greatest folk albums of the last decade. Temper, while stylistically similar, is not a sequel to Précis; Meluch explores new paths here, but still produces an album which is an immensely satisfying listen.
