When he wants to,Benoit Pioulardmakes beautiful hushed folk music. That's when he's not making weird ambient interludes or riding his bike or hanging out in Portland or something. "Lasted" is one of those quietly affecting songs that sneaks up on you, and before you know it you're having a personal breakdown followed by intense revelation all because this dude Sean Gillane animated the inside of a whale skeleton or something. Is this the song's fault, the video's fault or our fault for getting sappy because it's the holidays?
