Born with a Broken Heart by David Wax Museum
You know what turns me onto a band? I love it when bands don’t take themselves too seriously. Nobody likes classical music because it’s stuffy*. I hate bands that are stuffy. You know who’s not stuffy? David Wax Museum. This is one of their videos. You can just tell that they’re having a ball, that they’re really good friends, that they go into their jobs intending to play and laugh a lot.
I can’t name their genre, (Mexo-Americana? North-and-south-of-the-border? Jawbone pop?) but I can name their joy. Also, it might just be me, but Sue Slezak looks like a modern Judy Collins. And she plays violin while singing. She can also play the jawbone taken from a dead donkey. Right.
(*I actually really like classical music. The non-stuffy kind, though.)
