David Wax Museum: Artist You Should Know

Written by

As many of you know, KCRW offers up a free song every day and  Today’s Top Tune, as we call it, comes from David Wax Museum, a Bostonian band blending Mexican folk and Americana roots music. They even played at the Newport Folk Festival in 2010, a huge accomplish for an up and coming band.

I must say, when I read the band name, I was instantly intrigued. Clever band names can be misleading or, at times, outright obnoxious but there was a playful nature to “David Wax Museum” and, upon further inspection, I learned there was some great music too.

Today’s Top Tune
is a song called “Yes, Maria, Yes” from their album “Everything is Saved” and you can stream it below and download it right here.

Check out the video for their track “Born With a Broken Heart” below. This is what really won me over!


p.s.: Just a reminder that we’re in the midst of our Winter Pledge Drive. If you get a free song a day from KCRW and we’ve helped build your iTunes collection, isn’t that worth a donation? Think about it…
