never content to remain stagnant over the course of their almost decade long career, 2009 finds pelican has shifted gears once again. '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. as punishing as it is calming, what we all come to need is pelican at their most inspired and sonically adept, delivering 50 minutes of weighty riffs and textured progressions in the momentous succession. this isn't maturation as much as it is confidence and purpose, and the latter are stamped on every note.
guest performances on the record include greg anderson (sunn0)))), aaron turner (isis), allen epley (shiner, life and times), and ben verellen (helms alee).
