Mayer Hawthorne's latest is "How Do You Do" and it's also on Universal Republic. It's soul music, smoother than the aftermath of a fifty foot slug, just right for yuppie drones hoping to get lucky with a meaningful drunken one night stand with whatzerface/whatzisface. Hawthorne is a credible and solid vocalist who will probably make zillions for those that don't care much about or think too much about music, but it's just too - what's the word? Smarmy. It's "Mad Men" music for the new millennium.
