Pelican
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.

02 The Creeper
03 Ephemeral
04 Specks of Light
05 Strung Up from the Sky
06 An Inch Above Sand

What We All Come to Need is as aphoristic about living as it is metaphoric about dying. It’s a musical version of Picasso’s Guernica where the instruments are the paintbrushes and your ears are the canvas.
