Mayer Hawthorne – I Need You

September 7, 2010

I absolutely loved his 1st two singles as a solo artist, but Mayer Hawthorne‘s debut album failed to follow through. Not that the album was unlistenable, I just found it was a bit boring, predictable and nothing I needed in my collection. Mind you, most of this new soul & funk stuff coming out these days is just to clean that it sounds cheesey – I guess it can be put down to recording techniques and technology used to produce music.

So now the hype is now over and Mayer has sung his heart out with an Otis Leavill cover over a drum heavy & soulful production from hip hop heavyweight Nottz. This is a single side pressing with a sweet etching by Freegums on the flip. It’s supposedly limited (well we will see as STH seem to pull this ltd stunt often eg. mayers love heart 7″, doom etc) and comes in a a plastic cover…… Big Tune Alert.
