The 2kDozen 500: #129 - Mike Wexler, "Dispossession"

Perhaps he was in Canterbury in the early Seventies in a previous life. If he was, he hasn't strayed very far from there spiritually in his current life. Soft, spacious and pointed at the stars.

I especially like the longer tunes at either end of the album. "Liminal" has a really Pink Floyd feel, nagging bassline and sweet dischord and those jazzy drums that tinkle up when they feel like it but not that often. And it goes on for over nine minutes.His voice is a little creepy, but it works, slithering in and out of the serpentine tunes.

One that deserves a little more listening to when I've not fallen so far behind.
