One of the best albums I have listened to in the past weeks is Mayer Hawthorne’s A Strange Arrangement. Definitely not a modern sound, and deeply rooted in 60’s soul, Mayer delivers a record which is easy to listen to and surprisingly thoughtful. I keep thinking about Amy Winehouse’s Lioness when I am listening, it has that same nostalgic tone. Oh, he always plays and sings everything on the album.
Not too shabby.
