Don't let the clothes fool you. Mayer Hawthorne is probably the coolest nerd in the World right now. The man is bad!!!
If you are hip to Jamie Lidell, then you will like Hawthorne. Of course Hawthorne is brought to us via an independent record label. Another reason to hate the big record companies. I can't stand the bland cookie cutter stuff that clogs the commercial radio airwaves. It all sounds the same, has no character, and no individual imprint at all.
Anyway...I love Hawthorne's music.
Here's a quick interview. I may post a song or two later..if I can find something.
