Pelican – City of Echoes (Live in Los Angeles 2006)

Brooding and building post rock from Chicago, perfect Friday afternoon session music. Instrumental without focus being wasted on lyrics, the music takes the listener on a journey. Pelican is like the Skatalites in the sense that no one really dislikes them. It is nice, unabrasive music that can be left on for a hour without anyone noticing or minding.
The first song on City of Echoes starts out strong and heavy, in contrast to the next two songs, which might explain why I overlooked this album for so long, but it is quite good; 87%
