I had a chance to check out Mayer Hawthorne and Chromeo’s concert last week at the Masquerade in Atlanta. Great show! I was also able to pick up some cool vinyl pieces while I was there. His new album, How Do You Do, will be dropping in October. Check out the tracklist below and some photos of his vinyl albums below.
Mayer Hawthorne’s sophomore album (and major label debut) will be released on October 11th. In anticipation of his new album, he will be releasing new music every monday as part of #MayerMondays. Here’s a remix of his current single, “A Long Time” by Chromeo. Nice!

Back in April, Mayer Hawthorne participated in Stones Throw’s first ever Direct-to-Disc Campaign, where the sets are recorded straight to vinyl-LP in real time. 500 Units will be pressed on vinyl… Here’s a sample. You can get the project here (if there are any left).
Here’s one of the better records I’ve heard off of Beyonce’s upcoming album, 4, which will be released on June 28th. It features Andre 3000 (of Outkast) and is produced by Kanye West and Consequence.
Here’s the video for Chris Brown’s most recent single, “She Ain’t You” off of his F.A.M.E. album in stores now. The song samples Michael Jackson’s 1983 hit, “Human Nature”.

So, I was hanging out with Greg Tecoz aka G-Fresh a few weeks ago at the tattoo shop, and I ran into an artist named Tony. He told me about his group, GlamourLyke, and played me some of the music. I love it! I’m going to be working with these guys soon… This song, “It’s True (I Love You)” features Dreamer from Hollyweerd. Shout out to Tony! Check out the video after the break.
