Boomkat Product Review:
Returning for a sixth album after a decade of recording, Mark Nelson resumes duties as Pan American, once again employing a very human brand of minimalism to his craft, establishing an evocative and exquisitely sombre electroacoustic sound, fabricated from strands of guitar, electronics and all manner of subtle nuances that pepper the background with that distinctive... Pan American-ness that made the likes of Quiet City so utterly bewitching. The irregular tremolo and whispered vocal of opening piece 'There Can Be No Thought Of Finishing' provides an early highlight and a sense of sonic bliss that's all too quickly shattered, giving way to layers of noisy tones and clattering drums, only to give way to the weightless gestures of 'For Aiming To The Stars', a fine drift-scape buoyed onwards by intermittent root notes played by bass while the pitter-pat of cymbals keeps time. Although less organised, 'Is A Problem To Occupy Generations' manages to weave something beautiful from what seems to be a few wafts of amplifier hiss, giving way to the contrapuntally pristine blues of 'So That No Matter'. Offering an entirely different prospect,'How Much Progress One Makes' sounds like a surreal exchange between Massive Attack, Burial and Philip Jeck, producing one of the album's most compellingly rhythmic and most arrestingly atmospheric moments. Pan American albums seem to be painfully few and far between, but when one does eventually make it out of the studio the result is something very special indeed.
