Pelican Johnny’s debut full-length album, Relentless Heart, is a thorough synopsis of his diverse influences and musical interests. From dark, sappy folk songs and taking-a-stand honky-tonking numbers to fuzzed-out guitars-a-roarin’ tracks from the straight-ahead rock’n’roll side of punk, the songs have a common link in their vocal grit and memorable hooks. Most of the album was recorded and engineered by Johnny in his humble East Austin home studio (where he also mixed and mastered it). Other than the violin, accordion and sax parts, he performed every instrument on this release making this an all encompassing DIY effort. “It was important to me to keep this a raw and honest record – and not to get carried away with fixing things, which is easy to do in this era of recording. Although it was a lesson in learning to let go, I think the true spirit of these songs was accurately captured here.” -
