2009’s thunderous What We All Come to Need was Pelican’s most diverse and well written and focused record to date. Three years is long enough to wait for new Pelican material in my opinion. Throughout their existence they have created some of the most expansive and epic instrumental passages I have ever heard. This year, Pelican once again raises the bar for other bands in their class with the four song EP Ataraxia/Taraxis. This short but sweet EP begins a new chapter in Pelican’s career and takes their established sound a step further.
