|Pan-American / Patience Fader, The|
|Album:||Patience Fader, The||Collection:||General|
Blissful solo guitar pieces with some lap steel and harmonica. This is the solo project of Mark K. Nelson, who was one of the members of post-rock/ambient architects Labradford. Recently Nelson's been moving from his standard dub/ambient/glitch palette to something more like dreamy abstract Americana. Good for imaginary road trips. RIYL The Durutti Column, Chuck Johnson, William Tyler, Zelienople, 1 Mile North, Loren Connors. Favorites: 1, 2, 4, 7, 12. No words, no FCCs.|
1. *(2:49)—Wobbly guitar to start, relaxes into a major-key lullaby.
2. *(6:28)—Two-chord see-saw, lonely solo guitar melodies over a loop. Soothing.
3. (2:46)—Soft, distant harmonica loops.
4. *(4:02)—Suuuuper pretty lap steel melodies over slow, low guitar.
5. (0:28)—Field recording of a door opening and closing.
6. (3:09)—Medium-slow lope, more rhythmic, hazy.
7. *(2:36)—Echoey minor-key soloing, nighttime music.
8. (4:58)—Medium-slow, low lockstep guitar. Same chords and very similar melodies to "Memphis Helena" from his previous album.
9. (2:34)—Mid-tempo, road-movie montage music.
10. (1:30)—Slightly jumpy harmonica drone.
11. (4:55)—Very slow lullaby guitar, loose and languid.
12. *(3:42)—Gentle static, muffled guitar, lonesome harmonica. Wintry in feel.
