Mayer Hawthorne's 2009 release 'A Strange Arrangement' was a revelation.
His sophomore album continues his journey into sweet soul territory and it
is clear from his consummate grasp of the genre that he is both a fan as
much as he is a hugely talented composer. These twelve fine songs are a million
miles away from mere pastiche. Mr Hawthorne (nee Andrew Mayer Cohen) has
learned his lessons well at the feet of the masters and knows how to both
spin a good tune and get our fingers snapping and toes tapping in-time too.

He has a splendid voice and a pitch-perfect falsetto (heard to striking
effect on opening track 'I Get To Know You'). He's well up there with Daryl
Hall in his grasp of laid-back soulful exposition. Music for late night lovers!

Other than the just mentioned-cracker there are a feast of other delicious
performances on offer. Standout numbers include the crisp summer shuffle
of 'A Long Time' with its slick backing vocals; the string-infused clap-along
Californian bonhomie of 'Dreaming'; 'You Called Me', with its joyous Motown
horns and beats and the simply beautiful 'You're Not Ready', a song to melt the
hardest heart! Final track 'No Strings' is a model of bright and breezy economy.

'How Do You Do' knows just what to do and does it with style and panache.

Highly Recommended.

This is the second album from Mayer Hawthorne, the first being the excellent A Strange Arrangement. Nothing has changed with his stylings, he's still an exceptionally talented, occasionally falsetto, soul-singer.

How do you do is a lovers album simply, it's a little too sickly-sweet at some points to be listened to in general (commuting music this probably isn't) but his flair for producing relaxing neo-soul that is reminiscent in sound & feel to something out of the 80's. This is achieved by his frequent usage of keyboard and shallow-bass that gives it a 'cheesy' but authentic soul-sound.

Lyrics are intelligent and heartfelt, some of the songs (esp. Finally Falling) are brilliant and offer true perspective and it's difficult not to like someone who has bared so much of their soul (pun intended) on their record. The appearance of Snoop Dogg was a welcome surprise and adds more of a hip-hop styling to 'Can't Stop'. Some have argued that his neo-soul styling is merely a pastiche of previous works, but I feel that Mayer Hawthorne is adding something of his self to his nostalgic love of soul.

Recommended for an album to set the mood, dim the lights and open some wine to.

What a wonderful album the best i have listened to for many years. Mayer Hawthorne can do it all his song writing is spot on and his voice is outstanding. Waiting for another album hopefully not too far away.

I first heard of this guy when Al Kooper recommended The Walk as one of his tracks of the year. He was right - it's stunning.
So I bought the album... and it doesn't really live up to the best song. It's fine but a bit samey.
I'll keep listening though - anyone who produces a song like The Walk deserves another listen. Catch the video if you can for it - violent and weird.
