Pelican and Tombs

Change has been a gradual process for Chicago’s Pelican. The instrumental quartet started their career with an eponymous EP that took the glacial sludge of Neurosis and Sleep and reduced it to its most seismic essentials. Their sound evolved with the more nuanced riffage of Australasia, the atmospheric haze of The Fire in Our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw, and the truncated metallurgy of City of Echoes and What We All Come to Need. But perhaps the most pivotal leg of their journey came in the four-year gestation period leading up to last year’s Forever Becoming. In that time, Pelican shed the last remaining vestiges of their debut’s palm-muted lurch in favor of a panoramic sound combining the shimmering melancholy of Tristeza and the up-tempo heft of Failure. With Tombs. BRIAN COOK
