Sometimes, when geniuses slip out of sight, you forget that they are still plying their trade, hidden away from machinations of the media. After Pan American’s two-year hiatus (and with their last album slightly less then desirable), scrutiny is high. Their new album delivers, demonstrating that words could never convey the understated eloquence of Pan American’s brilliant musical theorem. A songwriter’s poetic melding of the organic and digital, filled with delicate twilight hues, Quiet City is absolutely essential.
