Smoooooooth! I like it.




Did you guys see he posted this unreleased track from the vaults a little while back called Handy Man? Reminds me a lot of his Strange Arrangement era stuff.

Mr.(Ko)Kane

Looking forward to Mayer's new project. Thanks for this thread, didn't know about it beforehand. 8) Actually, I don't want to hear any of the tracks yet and want to experience them all at once - knowing 2 out of 10 tracks already kinda kills the anticipation for me. But great hearing the positive feedback.

Did you guys check out the Jaded Incorporated (Mayer Hawthorne & 14KT) project from 2014? Didn't hear about it until last week and didn't have a chance to listen to it yet.

Edit:
Just noticed that Matty hooked up the Jaded Inc. project. So you surely heard about that.  ;D

i was a little sceptical of this album vs 'Where Does This Door Go' but these tracks have got better and better, great stuff 8) https://soundcloud.com/mayerhawthorne/lingerie-candlewax

loved the driving piano on 'Love Like That' and again this one is infectiously groovy. the chords are right into Scott Storch territory 8)

we have lift off 8)

Matty

so after some spinning, this album is pretty short but plenty FUNKY!

lots of jams of all kinds of flavours and tempos, dope production painting pictures throughout. great vibes.

wait till you guys hear this last track 'out of pocket'! 8)

he also picked some great singles, 'love like that' and 'lingerie & candlewax' are other standouts.

book of broken hearts - dat west coast style bassline, think zapp & roger 8)

this albums waaaaay better to me then the jake one project.

the jake one project made me appreciate where does this door go so much more.


this albums real cool. in the beginning its kind of a challenging listen then he eases you into more classic traditional sounding shit. this is something jazz musicians did in their album sequencing alot back in the day to break in new sounds to old fans. the album gets better as it goes on as i think a good album should. id give it 3.5 out of five stars


strange arrangement is my personal classic from him.

thanks petey 8)

i think anyone who liked where does this door go is going to be feeling this, there are a lot of similarities. but the sound is more funked up and lively, it's got this tropical marvin gaye thing going on, very vibrant 8)

I like it.  More upbeat than his prior solo stuff.  Wish it had more tracks but overall a nice effort.  7.5/10.
