Product Details

Summary

Mayer Hawthorne grew up just outside of Detroit, and vividly remembers, as a child, driving with his father and tuning the car radio in to the rich soul and jazz history the region provided. "Most of the best music ever made came out of Detroit," claims the singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, who counts Isaac Hayes, Leroy Hutson, Mike Terry, and Barry White among his influences, but draws the most inspiration from the music of Smokey Robinson, Curtis Mayfield, and the legendary songwriting and production trio of Dozier, Holland, and Holland Jr.

The "retro" tag is added to almost any contemporary work that sounds like it was originally recorded between 1966 and 1974, and Hawthorne, among the newest contributors to the genre, is aware of how trends come and go. After being introduced to Stones Throw label head Peanut Butter Wolf, even the label boss was skeptical. "He showed me two songs and I didn't understand what I was listening to," Wolf recalls. "I asked him if they were old songs that he did re-edits of - I couldn't believe they were new songs and that he played all the instruments."

Comment: This is great, refreshing, its like getting a drink of cold water on a scortching hot day. After all the b.s. I've been hearing lately and some people trying to make music sound like this, I can honestly say no one has anything on this guy. He's in his own league. Just take a listen....

Comment: He hits all the styles: Motown, Memphis Soul, Chicago Soul etc...all with stunning accuracy and with the emphasis on the songwriting and Cohen's smooth upper register tenor voice. Fucking A, great record. (PS I hope that the people that enjoyed this record also check out Lee Fields & The Expressions "My World."

Comment: There is nothing strange about this arrangement. Just some full on old school Detroit flava. I got the same feeling when I heard RJD2's first albulm. Don't Sleep.
