David Wax Museum Stirs the Music Melting Pot

Sep 20, 2012

As a band,  David Wax Museum is a kind of palate cleanser, take  some Mexican folk songs, run em through an indie pop bath, add a dash of southern fiddle, maybe a donkey’s jawbone and you’ve got a musical breath of fresh air.  David Wax Museum’s new album Knock Knock Get Up has a kind of brightness that you might not expect on an album produced in an old farmhouse in the bracing cold of a Maine winter.
