Never content to remain stagnant over the course of their almost decade long career, 2009 finds PELICAN has shifted gears once again. This year sees them on a new label, Southern Lord, and presenting a brand new full length. WHAT WE ALL COME TO NEED is PELICAN through and through and the apex of their creative aspirations. It is the album that straddles most confidently the fine line between adherence to roots and the mining of the unexplored. This is PELICAN at their most inspired and sonically adept, delivering 50 minutes of weighty riffs and textured progressions in momentous succession. This isn’t maturation as much as it is confidence and purpose, and the latter are stamped on every note. Greg Anderson (sunnO)))), Aaron Turner (ISIS), Allen Epley (Shiner, Life and Times) and Ben Verellen (Helms Alee) are guests on the album, lending the record organic diversity.
