Pan•American - Quiet City (2004)


A haunting, quietly stunning fusion of abstract, low-key post-rock/slowcore and glitchy ambient. Crystalline guitars, ghostly drones, crackling static, fragile-sounding electronics, minimal percussion, and occasional whispery vocals. Listening to Quiet City shortly after it came out, while under the influence of cough syrup, weed, and a severe fever, remains one of the most transcendent music listening experiences of my life -- pretty sure I levitated.

1. Before
2. Smallholding
3. Wing
4. Inside Elevation
5. Hall and Skylight
6. Lights on Water
7. Retouch
8. Christo en Pilsen
