David Wax Museum – Chuchumbe
by Kyle Mitchell, the editor and founder of Music Savage, lover of music, hater of remixes.
Another track surfaced yesterday (Paste got the honors) from David Wax Museum’s upcoming album, Everything is Saved (due February 8). Another foot-stompin mexican folk track with some interesting history. The song was banned in mexico years ago by the catholic church because of its suggestive lyrics (chuchumbe is senegalese for bellybutton to bellybutton) and now it’s made it’s way back to boston. Everything I’ve heard from David Wax has been fantastic, and this only builds more anticipation.
If you are here in Boston, David Wax Museum will be throwing a release party that looks to be pretty amazing. Grab your tickets here.
