Mayer Hawthorne Makes Sexy Music

I'll be the first to admit, I've been a little slow to warm up to Mayer Hawthorne. Some of his stuff I really like because he's got a real unique, soulful, mellow sound to a lot of his tracks, which is intriguing to me simple because it's unlike everything else. I feel like it's time I gave him some limelight with his newest track titled No Strings, which is every bit as smooth as it sexy with the rolling bassline that is set off nicely by Mayer's falsetto over piano keys.

As I mentioned earlier, there have been times where I've gotten a little bored listening to his music, but it's almost like he hit the fast forward button with this new track compared to some of the stuff on his first album A Strange Arrangement. I like that because this track is a little more upbeat and @CLASSIXX sets the mood right with that "classy" bassline, no pun intended. They make a good duo, I hope they continue to make more music together because it's a challenge avoiding the eminent rocking back and forth while snapping the fingers when listening to the track.

I still find it funny Andrew Cohen got his pornstar stage name @MAYERHAWTHORNE by combining his middle name with the street name he grew up on. Has worked for plenty of other...uh...artist, so might as well stick with a naming convention that has worked?

Below is a promo commercial for his 2010 Tour sponsored by Mazda, which showcases his bubbly personality a little bit...

I'd file this away into the Grown and Sexy music collection and don't hesitate to play it for that girl you just met whom you're trying to hook up with tonight...#HonestyWins
