A TAV Curator’s Pick.

The first physical release of Mayer's 2016 digital EP, pressed on luminescent aquamarine vinyl. – Press Release

“Hawthorne sticks to the classic throwback sound that has become the backbone of his own sound since he first arrived on the scene back in 2009. Whereas his earlier releases leaned more towards '80s soul-pop, this EP picks up where Man About Town … left off. Filled with lush strings and full arrangements, Mayer also sticks to seemingly his favorite topic, love lost and found.

Things get off to a smooth start with the '80s-R&B-styled "Someone Like You" before dipping into the doo-wop sounds of yesteryear on "A New Love." He completes the trio of new material by zipping back to the funky sounds of disco on "A Time for Love." The instrumentals of these songs present the opportunity to just take in the beauty found in the music itself. Gone are the days when EPs consisted of just throwaway material that didn't make the cut for an album; now music fans can expect high-quality, original material just as he presents here. Not many artists can bring listeners on a trip through different musical eras, but Hawthorne does it effortlessly, laying the foundation for what could hopefully be another full release in the near future.” – Soul Bounce
