about

Tape-warped phantom band Rangers finally unleashes the grainy, soaring, Americana opus he always hinted was lurking inside his fretboard/mind. North Dallas-raised, San Fran-based multi-instrumentalist Joe Knight grew up taking classical guitar lessons from a guy who claimed to have “toured with the Dead,” and some of that burner journey ethos seems to have sunk into his own mode of loose, lo-fi 4-track questing. But whereas last year’s Suburban Tours LP condensed his fantasy transistor rock into radio nuggets, Pan Am Stories opts for the reverse strategy, expanding chord patterns into scenic coastline cruises and wide skied psychedelic sagas. The extra breadth gives these 13 songs a sense of lightness and flight, brushed in blankets of fuzz, reverb, samples, and hiss.
