David Wax Museum - "Uncover the Gold"

This may not be the official first single off David Wax Museum's highly anticipated new album, but it is a professionally recorded and shot video, so it will do for now. David Wax Museum were recently in Austin (most likely for SXSW) and stopped by for a Jam in the Van session. Of of the songs they recorded is "Uncover the Gold," which will be on their upcoming album. "Uncover the Gold" seems like a standard, mostly mainstream folk song on the surface. And it would be a great song if that's what it is. As you listen to it, you start noticing the horns bring in the Mexican folk they normally do in a David Wax Museum song, but they join in with Suz Slezak's fiddle in an odd almost indie rock noise harmony. It helps to make a really cool song something even more intriguing. 

You can watch the Jam in the Van version of "Uncover the Gold" below. David Wax Museum's new album, Line of Light, will be out in August on Nine Mile Records. You can pre-order your copy here. For more on David Wax Museum, check out their website. Current tour dates are below the video.
