I’ve discussed here how much I heart Motown, and anyone who has had the misfortune to karaoke with me (totally a verb) will know that I’m particularly enthusiastic about it. So I guess it makes sense that my new favourite musician, as of eight hours ago and thanks to My Chemical Toilet, is Mayer Hawthorne.
Just watch this:
That track is toe-curlingly good and so much like 60s Motown I can’t believe it was produced in 2009. I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about new music and I’m crossing my fingers he’ll be touring the UK soon.
Also, have you seen how cute his specs are?! Geeky glasses make a boy at least 17x cuter. Trufax.
AND he replied to me on Twitter. See.
