What can I say about Mayer Hawthorne that hasn’t already been said? The Detroit crooner is blowing up over the blogosphere and is about to take the US by storm with his upcoming album A Strange Arrangement, which drops on October 6th on Stone’s Throw.

Even though I told myself that I wouldn’t post about any new retro, “Motown-ish,” or blue-eyed soul artists this year, I gotta make an exception with this dude. His track “Maybe So, Maybe No” is still one of my favorite I’ve heard this year. I’m not feelin’ this track “Your Easy Lovin'” as much as some of the other ones I’ve heard, but I still think that A Strange Arrangement might be one of the more anticipated albums of 2009.

Mayer goes on Tour this Fall including a stop at DC9.

What do y’all think?
