Papa M(USA): The Cranker. With special guests A Broken Sail.
Fri 8 Sep @ 7:30 pm
PAPA M TAKES THE UPRIGHT PATH TO THE LAND OF OZ
by Rian Murphy (Drag City Records)
Papa M makes mood music both instrumental and vocal. The M-leader, David Pajo, is a caretaker of the darkest feelings found underneath the six strings of an guitar, acoustic or electric (he does both, yo). Most recently, this beautiful and occasionally frightening sound manifested as A Broke Moon Rises, an acoustic record of music without words that is meditative and at times medicating, ripe for those in need of a lifeline. Before it came Highway Songs, which was very electric, a bit electronic, and tended towards the eclectic: some songs with words, too. Are you getting us? M is the proud Papa of the classic turn-of-the-century, ur-pulse of the minimal universe album, Live From A Shark Cage, and David Pajo spent his formative years as guitar hero for the hugely influential rock band, Slint, out of Louisville, KY. Drool much, do ya?
M-Heads down under, it’s your time to salivate, cause this lovingly creepin’ darkness will soon descend upon you – Papa M is set to tour Australia in September! Check the dates below and prepare to engage!
A BROKEN SAIL
The Cinematic Avant-garde collective.
Taking influence from the Louisville sound of the 90’s; ‘A Broken Sail’ has been making waves domestically and internationally since 2017.
Band leader and sole songwriter of the group ‘Zal Dastur’ made his way on the international scene with Papa M in 2018.
This propelled the bands profile and saw their release 1906 sell out of 500 copies pressed overnight.
The band who is well know for their searing volume assaults and quiet sharp moments, is fresh from an ANZ tour with June Of 44 and ready to serve up the Slocore vibe.
