Mayer Hawthorne - Just Ain't Gonna Work Out

Tuesday, July 28, 2009 | |

When Peanut Butter Wolf, the man behind LA-based Stones Throw Records, first heard 29-year-old Mayer Hawthorne's music he was confused by what he was listening to...did dude just cover old tunes? Was he just producing some new stuff with a retro feel? Truth was, Hawthorne was not only singing on his tracks but arranged and played all the instruments for his original music. His album drops in September but until then, check this cute b+w video for his single, "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out." The actual single was released as a heart-shaped vinyl featured in the video.
