Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. Brooklyn's Mike Wexler has persisted through several waves of contemporary folk music without ever being fully absorbed by any of them. In a landscape of Americana and American Primitive-derived guitar music, Syntropy borrows as much from the school of Bert Jansch as from the rhythms and chord voicings of Brazilian masters and the rapid, mantric repetitions of minimalism, while the lyrics eschew storytelling in favor of a deeply personal metaphysics. Enlisting the core players from his previous release (Brent Cordero of Psychic Ills, Jordi Wheeler of Amen Dunes among them), the record's imaginary landscape of acoustic instruments are foregrounded - guitars, piano, conga. Situated within this framework is the continuous sound generated by a host of analogue synthesizers, and on the record's two instrumental cuts, a Mellotron.
