Part mexican cowboy and country hobo Bob Dylan, Mr. Wax is like shot from a high proof bottle of Kentucky moonshine. From full blooded ballads with freewheeling instrumentalists to deadpan humor, each song in this album has a unique style and feeling. From the green pastures of Harvard University where he plied the waters with his six string before retiring to the jungles of Mexico playing for pesos in the Zocolo, he has sopped up influences and penned broadsides. At times earnest at times ironic, his singing is complemented by fine musical stylings and a rich variety of instruments from guitar to jarana, accordian and lively piano playing. In my favorite, A Splitting Tree, the lilting tempo and lively ragtag string accompaniment create an intimate timeless feeling befitting an old time country band. Admission to this museum is worth the price!

Gritty, soulful and plain fun!

I am so glad I discovered this music. Gives me lots of smiles while riding my road bike with my Ipod. Hope to hear a alot more from this group.

Under the name David Wax Museum, the two released their debut LP, I Turned Off Thinking About, in 2008 and began touring...
