Mike Wexler, ‘Dispossession’
Mike Wexler’s will be the one of the more unlikely voices to silence rowdy rock club crowds in 2012. It’s an enchanted, unassuming, androgynous exhalation, steered through its chantlike melodies the way memory might guide you through the cadence of a prayer. You’ll hear some Nico and Cyann in it, as well as some Elliott Smith and Scott Walker - yet for all its restrained presence and associative force, it falls across the songs on “Dispossesion’’ - Wexler’s second album - more like light than a lead vocal.
