I’ve Been Enjoying This Pelican Movement
I probably don’t consume music the way I used to; I don’t thumb through the liner notes as often as I once did. So it should come as no surprise that I had no idea who Kevin McMahon was, though I own albums with his production all over them (Swans, Titus Andronicus, The Walkmen). He’s working on his own project, Pelican Movement, and it’s an interesting bit of work; the core of the song rests on airy vocals and a strummed acoustic guitar, but he fills the empty space with atmospherics, both discordant and harmonious, creating this huge wall of sound that’s sure to capture your attention. Look for his split 7″ with Battle Ave. today!
