"Mark Nelson has been recording and trading tapes under the name Pan American for some time now. Mark's contributions to Labradford, as the trio's guitarist and singer, may prepare the listener somewhat for the debut Pan American album. It is a resolutely rhythmic album, carrying with it traces of dub and bossa nova. A drummer plays on 2 tracks. All of the other beats you hear are samples. Tones generated from voice, guitar and electronics are maneuvered and warped across the soundfield. At times Pan American is reminiscent of the long lost Embrace the Herd album by the Gist (with the low key traces of dub rhythms) and at other times of current practitioners of minimalist techno such as Panasonic or Porter Ricks or of old school sound organizers like Zoviet France." A lo-pulse mood-enhancer and one of the finest Kranky label home-listening documents to date.
