I apologize for those who feel they’ve been inundated with Mayer Hawthorne buzz over the last few months, or year rather. But he’s just so darn good!! I love this heart-shaped record he released with Stones Throw for his debut single, “Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out.” I heard they made limited runs of this and sold out. But it seems that they’ve reissued them again. Good thing! Label head Peanut Butter Wolf says that Mayer Hawthorne was the only person he’s ever signed onto Stones Throw after hearing just two songs. That’s gotta be worth something. If you get a chance, pick up his full length album Strange Arrangement. The music, the production, everything is unreal. You’ll be confused thinking you’ve heard his songs before, but they’re totally current. Mayer Hawthorne’s music isn’t just a retro throw back to old motown/soul but it’s something new, something special.
