DOWNLOAD THIS NOW: Mayer Hawthorne’s Stones Throw Podcast

Mayer Hawthorne, live at Brooklyn Bowl with the Roots

It’s been a while since we last heard from Mayer Hawthorne, unless you count this now sold-out Bobble Head. Not to mention some upcoming ‘Hooligans In Wonderland’ dates with Janelle Monae and, um, Bruno Mars.

At any rate, we’re pretty sure a new album’s on the way this year, as first hinted at in Peanut Butter Wolf’s Stones Throw podcast a couple months ago. Now we’ve got the following mix–the third installment in the “Hawthorne Radio” series–to remind us that the singer/producer/DJ is still obsessed with golden oldies records and your grandfather’s favorite commercials…
