Pelican: "Immutable Dusk"

Unlike post-metallic peers Isis, who were starting to get a little twinkletoes there toward the end, Pelican have always kept locked in to the riff. They tend to work that riff for all it's worth, so some material goes over better than others, but "Immutable Dusk" finds the band playing to their audience's comfort zone: it never gets too new age-y or experimental, but over the course of seven minutes throws a suite of material at the listener at once satisfying and reasonably adventurous.

Forever Becoming is out October 15 on Southern Lord.
