David Wax Museum Duo
Pioneering folk musicians David Wax and Suz Slezak are the plucky husband-wife duo behind the eclectic, exuberant “Mexo-Americana” band David Wax Museum. After 14 relentless years touring the country and world, half of them with their two young children in tow, COVID’s abrupt disruption in March 2020 created a first jarring, then welcome creative pause for the Charlottesville, VA-based band. Before the pandemic, the ascendant band was enjoying newfound success with their 2019 first label release Line of Light, subsequent national TV debut on CBS This Morning: Saturday, and three distinct features on NPR’s World Cafe.
On April 16, David Wax Museum self-released Euphoric Ouroboric, one of four records the band made during quarantine and the band’s first foray into the experimental world of D.I.Y. home recording. Producer and longtime collaborator Alec Spiegelman (Okkervil River, Kevin Morby, Pokey LaFarge) blended drum machine loops with human performances, blurring the lines to chart new sonic territory for the band.
