Brooklyn Singer-songwriter Mike Wexler has one of those voices you never forget. Part of the pleasure of listening to his Mexican Summer debut is simply getting the opportunity to sit for a while with the natural, androgynous byproduct of air funneling up his throat. But what makes Wexler's voice particularly strange is that it never sounds like it's trying to be- especially when we compare him to other, better-known veterans of the "weird folk" revival of the past decade.

The air of gentle psych rock drift that Mike Wexler's 2012 album Dispossession has from the start certainly doesn't make any effort to be anything else: drawn-out airy keyboards straight from Sonic Boom's first solo effort, easygoing grooves, soft whispered vocals. No surprise, then, that the second song on the album is called "Spectrum," which might as well be an overt tip of the hat to the former Spacemen 3 co-leader
Second album from the Brooklyn singer-songwriter who blends folk, jazz, psychedelia, synths and more. Brooklyn chamber folkie's twist on the '60s.

Mike Wexler – Dispossession. Mike Wexler may not be of this time, or any other, for that matter. Dispossession, Wexler’s second full-length and his Mexican Summer debut, is definitely a Where did this thing come from? type of record. And though the answer is obviously not as peculiar or interesting as you might desire, for a record as utterly enigmatic and transient as Dispossession, more occult conclusions could also be argued. I’m not fully convinced Wexler is more than a wandering spirit.
