Your favorite Mexo-Americana indie-folkie band is back!
Okay, fine, so David Wax Museum may be the only band you know in that category, but the duo is ready to present Knock Knock Get Up, their third album overall and second since their buzzed debut at the 2010 Newport Folk Festival.
If you’re not familiar with DWM’s sound, think something like Andrew Bird, with a Mexican folk bent and a couple of dashes of Magnetic Fields and Wilco-ishness via Boston (the city, not the band).
The new album, out Sept. 4 (pre-order on Amazon here), includes their scrappy single “Will You Be Sleeping?”; ourselves, we’ve got “A Dog in This Fight” stuck in our heads, while “Wondrous Love” and “Big Heart of Yours” are making us feel kind of soft in the center.
