Pelican – Deny The Absolute 7”

7 Jacket (Glue Pocket - No Spine) [OB-GD17-001]

It should be of no secret that I love Pelican, but with founding guitarist Laurent Schroeder-Lebec leaving the band, I wasn’t sure what to expect. With this new 7” released by The Mylene Sheath, my concerns have been swept away. The band sounds as tight as ever. The A-Side, Deny The Absolute picks up right where there last album, 2011’s “What We All Come To Need” left off, heavy, driving instrumental rock.  Meanwhile, the B-Side, is more in the vein of 2012’s “Ataraxia Taraxis” EP, with an acoustic based sound. Both songs are excellent and have ratcheted up my anticipation for their next full length, “Forever Becoming”, which is due in October on Southern Lord.
