A good band to just mellow out with. It fits perfectly in the background of many things. I recommend if only you are a patient listener who won't expect things of a given song, but rather let it go where it goes.
My all time favorite Pelican song would have to be Final Breath, from What We All Come To Need. Brian Rossini
This album gurns and churns with the dense, atmospheric power of an angel wrestling the forces of hell.
Wolfe's voice is an ethereal swirl, but it can cut like a blade. Her guitar, meanwhile, is a reaper's scythe, and with it, she flails like a Balrog summoned deep and raging from the bowels of Middle Earth.
It's an album of dreams and nightmares, a sludge-gaze torrent of painful questions hurled into the void.
A brave, bold and empowering listen. Michael Mueller
