Pelican – Review


(Hydra Head)
by Craig Regala

Heavy, heavily groove-laden, dramatic, opium-dosed honey flows down instrumental trudge/dooms haunch and you lap it up. So do I. So does my wife (an Amazon). So does Brian Varney (Lollipop writer), so does Brian’s wife (another Amazon). Live, it’s twice as wide and liquid as mercury. Hugely supported by stoner rock lotus-eaters, Dead Meadow fans, and other free thinkers. Four cuts = about a half an hour. I know you’re pissed it doesn’t have a forty-minute Loop or Head of David cover, but you’ll get over it. It costs like $7. So, you got the sac to hang with the Amazons or what?
