An immensely talented guitarist and Louisville
, Kentucky, native, Pajo has been a member of indie-stalwarts Slint
, The Palace Brothers
and played with, among others, Stereolab
, Royal Trux
and King Kong
. Of late, he's been devoting the majority of his time to his own projects: M, Aerial M, and, most recently, Papa M
While typcially associated with the ultra-modern, his evocative instrumentals are increasingly incorporating the sounds of Appalachia into their depths, creating a wholly beautiful and original flavor of wordless American folk music.
Apparently, Will Oldham
, when on tour, often asks David ('Dave') to house-sit for him. At least, this is what Mr Oldham told my girlfriend when she chatted him up after seeing him play in a Stockholm
bar. Who knows what he might've been up to.
