What We All Come to Need
(Southern Lord)
Releasing: 27 October

Chicago instrumental metal outfit Pelican’s fourth full-length, What We All Come to Need is nigh upon us, recorded by Chris Common of These Arms Are Snakes, and featuring guest spots from Greg Anderson of Sunn O))) and Aaron Turner of Isis. The free-to-download track “Strung Up from the Sky” is a persistent, chugging number, stubborn in its course and rhythm, turning momentarily to take on new riffs and melodies but never wandering far.
