David Wax Museum - "Best Lover"

You kind of expect a song called "Best Lover" to be at least a little mushy, and the latest from David Wax Museum definitely is. But that's part of the charm of the husband/wife duo. They can pull off a song like this and make it endearing. Out of the three songs they've released so far off of their upcoming album, "Best Lover" probably has the most mainstream/crossover appeal, edging fairly far into the pop side of folk pop. There's even a brief hip hop-esque breakdown in the song that is reminiscent of G. Love & Special Sauce. What could have been an overly hokey song ends up being a lot of fun.

You can listen to "Best Lover" below. You Must Change Your Life is due out May 5 on Nine Mile Records, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on David Wax Museum, check out the artist's website.
