Amoeba Review

10/11/2011

Mayer Hawthorne’s second album blends soul with modern production to contemporize old-school R&B while still paying homage to his forebears like Isaac Hayes and Smokey Robinson. Hawthorne sets himself apart from his soul contemporaries like Adele or Sharon Jones by incorporating hip-hop beats (he started on independent hip-hop-centric label Stones Throw Records) as well as warm production, rife with strings, pianos and handclaps. The resulting album moves in so many directions it may be hard to keep up, if you get too caught up in each change. The best way to enjoy How Do You Do is to enjoy the ride, from the Isley Brothers-ish jam “A Long Time” to the Kanye-era hip-hop “Can’t Stop” (with Snoop Dogg) to the beautiful, Beatles-esque “Dreaming” to “The Walk,” a dead ringer for “Crystal Blue Persuasion.” Playing name that influence is rarely this inviting.
