Mexican folk isn't nearly the same as New England folkthe intersection of that Venn diagram might just say "into fringe"but for this border-crossing Americana duo, the culture clash produces a subtle flavor, like pesto pasta with a dash of picante. It's a fruitful mix, with guitarist David Wax doubling on the Mexican jarana, and fiddler Suz Slezak marking time with the rhythmic jangle of the quijada, a donkey jawbone. "Born With a Broken Heart," off last year's Everything Is Saved, has the lovelorn spirit of a heartache borne in Boston, but the pulsing soul of a Mayan harvest festival. With Aoife O'Donovan, Trixie Whitley, Jones Street Station, and Julia Easterlin.
