8/10 Clinton Staff review, 26 April 2013

Yo. Anyone out like sleeping? Know what I’m saying? Great isn’t it. Alas, it seems I don’t do it anymore. It’s a drag I guess and something that makes it harder to enjoy records like this as listening to the utterly gorgeous opening tune my eyelids are drooping, my body shutting down...zzzzzzzzz. It’s a wonderful way to fall into the land of nod, a lovely bassline cascades amongst some scattershot drumming and treated, ethereal guitar.

It’s the kind of thing Slowdive did very well on their ‘Souvlaki’ swansong although I hear plenty of traces of the long lost post rock pioneers Labradford possibly partly because of a former Labradford person within the personnel. This is the first Pan American album in ages and the second track veers towards complete blissful ambience until a soft 4/4 beat comes into play on ‘Relay’, this is joined by bass and treated guitar.

One thing I’m really enjoying about this record are the basslines. They are the main melodic blueprint and hold the drifting ambience together and recall those on Bark Psychosis ‘Hex’ and some of To Rococo Rot’s more downbeat suff. Simple but extremely effective. It’s gorgeously evocative stuff and the album will hugely appeal to those who miss the explosion of drifting ambience in the late ‘90s/early 2000s led by the somnambulant likes of Labradford, Windsor for The Derby, Fuxa, Seefeel.
