Throughout their seventeen year career Pelican have eschewed genre classification, crafting a wholly unique take on heavy music that careens between the bombastic visceral elements of metal and the epic atmospheric expanses of post-rock. Across five full lengths, seven EPs, and hundreds of live shows the quartet have cultivated a chemistry that borders on telepathy, catapulting the band to outlier appearances at international music festivals including Primavera, Roskilde, Pitchfork, Bonnaroo, Roadburn, and Maryland Death Fest, and
headlining club tours across four continents.
Jaye Jayle
Jaye Jayle
“Anyone who is using more than two chords is just showing off.”

Woodie Guthrie’s famous quote became a mantra for young musicians who rallied around folk’s austerity, and later inspired a new generation of artists who basked in punk’s primitivism. Guthrie’s songs may not be an influence on Louisville’s Jaye Jayle, but his call for simplicity as a deliberate choice versus a matter of mere ability resonated with the veterans of Kentucky’s dark indie scene. Naming themselves Jaye Jayle as a pen name or a pseudonym to veer away from a traditional band moniker, the group sought to eliminate unnecessary variables and deconstruct their compositions down to their most concentrated essence. Jaye Jayle owe less to our nation’s roots music and more to peripheral rock bands that have taken the “less is more” attitude to its furthest reaches. Imagine Spacemen 3 without the saturated wall of distortion, or Neu! without the upbeat motorik pulse, or Lungfish without the shamanistic howls. But these reference points seem either too bombastic or too lush. Perhaps a nexus of The Troggs’ ham-fisted drumming, Angels of Light’s ominous twang, and Suicide’s swaths of negative space hits closer to the mark, but even that doesn’t do the band justice. Jaye Jayle’s debut album House Cricks and Other Excuses To Get Out is an exercise in tension and restraint, a tightrope act between singer-songwriter traditions and art rock experimentation, and an intersection of Southern cultural permutations and otherworldly sounds.
Coronal Mass Ejection
"Coronal Mass Ejection‘s music consists of cerebral material put forward in a way that is both accessible and an absolute audible pleasure. Listen to it closely and be hypnotized by the layered complexity or just sit back and let it take you away mindlessly. It is that good!" Odyssey @ Metal Nexus

"[A] trio from Philadelphia, have made quite a splash among instrumental music fans of all sorts since the release of their EP...masterful blend of Post-Rock, Doom, Mathrock, and spacey psychedelic music...If Post-Math-Sludge didn’t exist before Coronal Mass Ejection, well, it fucking exists now." Aaron Edwards @ Echoes and Dust

"There’s some seriously mind-blowing shit happening on the five-songs from this three-piece out of Philly, PA…like…monstrously-massive music that hits hard in every direction with passionate instrumentation..." Jer@SBS
