Pelican - What We All Come to Need (2009)

Ok, I confess. I'm a Pelican fanatic. They're from Chicago, I've seen them live at least 10 times, and I can't find any flaws in anything they've ever put out. That being said, this is their new full-length, and their first on Southern Lord. It also features Greg Anderson (Sunn O))) ), Aaron Turner (Isis), Ben Verellen (Harkonen, Helms Alee), and Allen Epley (The Life and Times, Shiner).

It's not the best they've ever released, but it's a fantastic album. The track 'Final Breath' even has vocals! The singing is spacey enough so that it blends pretty seemlessly with the music, so it still sounds like Pelican, even though it's not insturmental.

  1. "Glimmer" - 7:31
  2. "The Creeper" - 7:20
  3. "Ephemeral" - 5:09
  4. "Specks of Light" - 7:46
  5. "Strung Up from the Sky" – 5:12
  6. "An Inch Above Sand" – 4:14
  7. "What We All Come to Need" - 6:47
  8. "Final Breath" - 7:29
