Switching effortlessly from Tex-Mex hoedowns ("Born With A Broken Heart", "Chuchumbe") to gorgeous, plaintive ballads ("Lavender Street", "Wait For Me" and the heartbreaking look back "The Least I Can Do") to the relentlessly upbeat "Yes Maria Yes", The David Wax Museum's Everything is Saved is the year's most approachable and inviting album. This band is impossible not to love. Fans of Los Lobos and early Felice Brothers should take note.
