Mixtape #68 by Benoît Pioulard


The marvellous singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Benoît Pioulard has been on a roll of late. This year alone he released his magnificent fifth album, Sonnet, a couple of accompanying pieces, Stanza and Stanza II, and even more recently the glorious Noyaux EP. So we are lucky he found time to wrap up the year by putting together our December mixtape. And it looks like Christmas came early as a previously unreleased track by Benoît Pioulard himself made its way in the mix. Titled 'Kenopsia', it has a tremendous immersive beauty that takes us to a soothing, warm and gentle place of ambient dreaminess. Press play and drift away.
