Much has been made of Stones' Throw recording artist Mayer Hawthorne. This Michigan native and multi-instrumentalist has one of the most heavily-anticipated debut albums of the year (barring Whitney's), and his breezy, nostalgic vibe permeates his music in a very authentic way. His video for "Maybe So, Maybe No" perfectly typifies the aforementioned style, and reminds me so much of what I used to hear on the radio as a little kid. My only issue is that I often long for someone with a bit more heft in their voice to sing these songs of his. In any case, this video does a great job of portraying what a typical day in Southern California can be: Venice Beach's boardwalk, The Do Over, crate-digging (I see you House Shoes), and catching loads of sunshine. If you can't be as lucky as myself in living in Los Angeles year-round, press play and live vicariously through the magic of video.
