Stones Throw has had its share of hits over the years, and measuring that success in the underground and abroad may not always balance out, but they just might have a real crossover on their hands with Mayer Hawthorne! Getting praise already from big time celebs like Justin Timberlake and John Mayer, and even Ghostface Killah jumping on board and snatching him up for a tour, Hawthorne is the new ''It'' kid in many music circles! His almost fetishistic love for 50's and 60's motown is matched only by his authentic ability to re-create it! So convincing, so freakishly accurate it's almost scary. Throwback is ''in'' right now, and I mean to reference Sharon Jones and the Daptones, Budos Band, El Michel's Affair, and plenty of others who bring a real vibrant and traditional funk and soul sound that you'd be able to fool an expert with. A Strange Arrangement brings it back to the sad solo vocalist, to the unique love ballads of doo wop in its hey day! I say this all the time...but hearing is believing...seriously! Everything is coming back full circle, where funk and soul were some of the groundwork that made hip hop music possible, we've come back to love and appreciate just why that is with this revivalist revolution. (''The Ills'' 7-inch is ONLY for people who buy the second pressing - which does NOT include the bonus 4.5-inch record.)
