DOWNLOAD: Pelican - Specks Of Light

Instrumental metal is either your thing or it isn't, unless we're talking about Pelican. They're not Sunn O))), you know? Dudes aren't soft, but the sludge they kick around is more cerebral than it is oppressive. And you don't have to know Calculus to find the first beat of a measure. And some dude who really worships Phil Anselmo isn't deepthroating the mic. It's approachable stuff. "Specks Of Light" is from their new LP for Southern Lord, What We All Come To Need. They're also headed out on tour come Saturday–those dates are after the break.
