Mayer Hawthorne - A Strange Arrangement (Stones Throw)

The local dignitary brings us an album of heart pulling falsetto’d songs that are backed by tight percussion. One part classic soul and one part modern hop, A Strange Arrangement is a lovely little long player. The title track is an ode to standing up to a no good lover, Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out tells it like it is and Green Eyed Love is an electric guitar blessed gem. A retro winner.
