Album Review

Reviewed 2004-11-07 
Artist: Pan-American
Album: Quiet City
Label: Kranky

Mixed acoustic/electronic ambient. Very, very slow, sometimes cheerful, often elegiac. I personally prefer the tracks without vocals, but others might feel differently. Similar to labelmate Loscil, with an admixture of Tape. Beware, almost all the tracks end ~ 10 s early. I liked 7 and 8.

1) 50 bpm. Guitar, whispered male vocals, quiet electronics. 2:17 buzzing ends 3:18
2) 50 bpm. Quiet opening, rhythmic buzz/click. Very chill. 5:30 static sounds, 8:00 fades out.
3) 30 bpm. Whispered male vocals, keening electronics, accordion.
4) 60 bpm. Low levels to ~ 30s. Mellow guitar, hissing maraca sounds. Minimalist accordion melody.
5) Minimalist guitar, hovering electronic background emerges from static. Drumset, whispered male vocals. Very mellow trumpets.
6) Low levels first 30 s, Minimalist guitar plays tritone melody. Sound ends about 5 s before end of track.
7) Electronic pulses, muted trumpet. At 1:50 add delicate, high pitched electronic pulses. Sound mostly ends 4:09. Recommended
8) Electric guitar, cricket-like electronica, very mellow. Sound ends about 30 s before end of track. Recommended.
