Mayer Hawthorne - "Maybe So, Maybe No"

For what it's worth, Mayer has the W&B co-sign. The dude just understands what makes a great soul song. And not the polished, plastic sound of most modern R&B. Real soul. There's some grit in it. The lyrics and melodies speak directly to you, taking you to a different place and time. If "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out" isn't in your life in some form, it should be. The Detroit-based musician will be dropping A Strange Arrangement this fall on Stones Throw. I, for one will be making that purchase.
