Michael Wexler - For the Fun

Princeton University graduate, ex-professional card player, and author of five published books, Wexler's sophomore release proves nothing short of remarkable. A quantum leap forward from the none-too-shabby "It's Too Late to be A Rock Star [EP]," the melodies bring new life to the meaning in this stand-out bio-pic LP.

Heartfelt hooks like "Beside the Point" and "For the Fun," echo the album's penetrating message while ballads like "The Junk Collector" and "The Night I Robbed The Memory Bank" mine the margins where the psyche begins to fray.

Though Wexler eschews playing live, and only a select few may ever stumble upon his "imaginary music career," those who do will not be disappointed.
