Mayer Hawthorne, the project of Detroit's dj, producer and singer-songwriter Andrew Cohen, debuted with A Strange Arrangement (Stones Throw, 2009), a faithful reconstruction of the sound of Motown soul of the Sixties that was entirely performed and assembled by him in person. Not a postmodernist meditation on a style but a straightforward nostalgic imitation of that style, notably Just Ain't Gonna Work Out, Maybe So, Maybe No, I Wish It Would Rain, Your Easy Lovin' Ain't Pleasin' Nothin'?, One Track Mind.

How Do You Do (2011) was a better sculpted exercise in blue-eyed soul revival influenced by Steely Dan's lounge elegance: Can't Stop, Finally Falling, No Strings, and especially The Walk and A Long Time. Meanwhile the relentless Motown party sound lives on with Dreaming and Hooked.
