Mayer Hawthorne: "Just Ain't Gonna Work Out (Remix)"

As if Mayer Hawthorne's silky-smooth falsetto vocals weren't relaxing enough, Astronote El Camino reworked " Just Ain't Gonna Work Out," ( arguably the best tune on his new record,) and it now melts. The tune is that discarded orange creamsicle melting in the hot hipster sun of the now distant Pool Parties.

Hawthorne's new record, A Strange Arrangement, drops on Sept. 8 -- it is vintage soul in a modern-day pop shell making for easy listening -- it isn't devoid of West Coast white boy attitude though... Good for these dwindling days of summer, but long-lasting enough to continue in the winter months aside a glass of burbon and Mad Men season three.
