Memphis Helena

Mark Nelson's Pan American drifts away from the dub electronics that have populated his career, and leans into the roots of pure Americana and wistful folksy guitar music on ‘Memphis Helena’: ”expansive but intimate” states Kranky, correctly. Nelson’s more sonically innovative work is naturally missed, but the naked emotional purity of this guitar and vocal tune has always been at the heart of his music. A haunting experience.
