    The glacial distillation of Pan American aka Mark Nelson's 'romantic minimalism' achieves unique fruition on his latest Kranky collection, The Patience Fader.

    Composed during the highly isolated summer of 2020, the pieces took shape as meditations on 'roots and mourning, trying to connect with those deep hidden rivers that lead to a greater commonalty'. There's something ageless, scarred, and American about this music, both displaced and devotional, the ghost of rust belts and dust bowls looming in a horizon of deepening dusk.
