Benoit Pioulard (the moniker of American musician, writer, and photographer Thomas Meluch, born August 4, 1984) just released his brand new album Hymnal and it’s quite simply a stunner. For the past while Pioulard has been living in England with his wife, and Hymnal was recorded in both the U.K. as well as mainland Europe. The album is very much a reflection of the inspiration he drew from the religious iconography in the cathedrals he visited while Hymnal was being recorded. You can stream it in full below, and to pick up your own digital copy simply head over to iTunes. For a CD or LP version of Hymnal you can head over to Benoit’s label at Kranky.net.
