5 Stars are yours tonight Mayer Hawthorne
on 23 August 2013
To cut to the chase, I heard "the stars are ours" thinking it was Steely Dan. I was stunned when I heard this was a new track from MH. I had not heard of him before and was hooked imediately (goosebumps aplenty). I purchased the album on the strength of "the Stars are ours" and thats where the problems started (only joking). I could not believe that there is this artist producing such quality and I have only just heard of him. This is pure genious. The style of music is so fresh, it incorporates so many genres and the quality of every track is just excellent. It is going to be very hard to find an album that is up to the standard of Mayer Hawthorne and I just hope that he continues to produce such quality music in the future.
To give you an idea of what his music sounds like you will need to consider the following artists Steely Dan, Jamiroquai, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake there is even some traits of Harry Connick Jnr (If you have heard his "She" album), there are elements of acid jazz, hip hop and so much soul that it is hard to beat.
Also check out his live performances on youtube, incredible!
Don't take my word for it, just treat yourself.
