The David Wax Museum - Born with a Broken Heart

One of the discoveries I made during the Newport Folk Festival was The David Wax Museum.  I had heard of them before, but I hadn't spent time with their music.  David Wax and Suz Slezak formed the band in Boston.  The music is eclectic, with a blend of Mexican roots and country folk music.  I was especially drawn to them when I watched their concert, because they absolutely emanate joy when they are performing.  They are a band that I'm sure is best appreciated live, so check out the links below to some live performances.  That said, I'm really enjoying their latest CD, entitled Everything is Saved.
