I am currently madly in love with Mayer Hawthorne & the County's debut release, "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out" (download here). Check out Hawthorne's bio on his label, how-are-they-sooooo-damn-cool Stones Throw. Bio of said "29-year-old white kid from Ann Arbor [Michigan]" includes a download link on the right of the page to the "Hawthorne Radio" podcast - but you should really just subscribe to all the Stones Throw podcast thru iTunes or some such.
Even more amazinger than the track is the limited-run vinyl:
Unfortunately, I was a couple weeks late to the Hawthorne love-in, and the initial run is sold out all over teh interwebs. I've signed up at a few sites to be notified if/when it comes back in stock, but even then I fear the overseas postage is likely to make it extremely difficult to justify. Damn living at the end of the earth!
Oh well, the next post will be more happy-making ... with cartoons!
