Sun Wheel is Mike Wexler's debut full-length and marks the arrival of an important new voice poised to be one of stars of tomorrow's underground. Crafted slowly over more than a year, this recording evidences Wexler's careful attention to detail and his affinities for progressive rock and the Canterbury scene of the late sixties and early seventies. Wexler is joined on Sun Wheel by Jordi Wheeler and Charles Burst of the Occasion and Brian Tamborello of Psychic Ills, all of whom also contribute to the arrangement and instrumentation throughout this recording. Though there are hints of the Soft Machine (Robert Wyatt is a professed and revered influence), Quiet Sun, and Meddle-ear Pink Floyd, Wexler's voice is completely contemporary and completely his own. 8 tracks. Amish Records. 2008.
