Mike Wexler sounds like if Nick Drake were in The Grateful Dead and hung out with Jandek or something. But not really. Wexler’s ageless voice and timeless instrumentals are achingly familiar yet blatantly new. On “Pariah,” the leadoff track of Dispossession, Wexler wheezes out gloomy psychedelia while retro organs gently drag the tired groove into a rather epic start to a rather fantastic new release.
Dispossession will be released by Mexican Summer on March 6. But it looks like you can order the LP from the site right now right now.
