David Wax Museum

The David Wax Museum is a band from the Boston area that fuses the sounds of traditional Mexican folk music and Americana.

New York Times writer James C. McKinley Jr. described the band's style as "a lively and rustic cross-border mix: lonesome Appalachian harmonies over mariachi horn lines and rhythms you might hear at a rural dance in Veracruz or San Luis Potosí."

Below you can watch the two new music videos for folk band David Wax Museum's new single, "Will You Be Sleeping."

"Each music video represents a dreamscape for one of the band members. The result is a trippy, beautiful and slightly unnerving journey into the world of Suz and David -- the duo that makes up David Wax Museum. These videos are unbelievably cool and the net effect is more like a short film than a music video. Check out both parts." - Mashable

They have a bunch of tour dates coming up in 2013 so be sure to check them out here.

So, after seeing these videos, along with Twin Shadow's approach to creating music videos, what do you think of the way indie acts are breaking ground with music video direction and design? Let me know in the comments.
