If you’re as worn out from this week as we are, you might wanna skip right to the “read more” link up ahead. After all, it points to a hefty handful of free Mayer Hawthorne MP3s, including a stellar Stones Throw podcast that sounds like a stolen transmission from the ’60s or ’70s–enough golden oldies to give you flashbacks or a serious case of the chills–and a Classixx remix that drops Hawthorne on the same dancefloor as Soft Cell. It’ll be officially pressed on a green slab of wax later this month. Until then, enjoy the first sign of Hawthorne’s future as a darkwave guest star and be sure to check out his $5 show at Brooklyn Bowl tomorrow if you missed out on his other two NYC area shows.
