Michael Kabran raved about blue-eyed soulman Mayer Hawthorne’s debut last year saying “A Strange Arrangement, with its smoky retro aesthetic, is best viewed as a whole rather than a collection of individual songs. Listening to each track, you have the distinct feeling that you’ve heard it somewhere else, possibly long ago. None of these songs stands out, and each track’s purpose seems to be to contribute to the overall creation of a work that totally evokes ‘60s-era R&B.” In this short interview with ShockHound, the singer waxes on about his crate-digging ways and his big love for Motown.
