Trevor de Brauw, guitarist of Chicago post-metal quartet Pelican, recently posted a solo track up on SoundCloud. Originally included as an mp3 download with the purchase of 4-day passes for Neon Marshmallow Fest (which De Brauw performed ver the weekend), the song was recorded sometime circa-2006 for what he refers to as “the probably-never-to-be-completed solo album Uptown“.
Those expecting a heavy-hitting Pelican track need not apply. “They Keep Bowing” is a layered, slow-burn of distorted guitar jam backed with the drone of an organ. It's dark, but also quite beautiful in that plastic bag dancing in the air kind of way.
