Mayer Hawthorne Covers Chromeo

Posted on May 19th, 2011 by Mr Goldbar

Download Mayer Hawthorne’s new Impressions EP of cover songs to hear his smoky take on Chromeo’s “Don’t Turn The Lights On.” Says Mayer: “On the surface it’s an electro-funk, dance floor filler, but underneath is a brilliant love ballad with lyrics that reminded me of something from Tyrone Davis. Dave1 told me the song is about a guy who falls in love with a ghost, so I wanted my version to have an eerie, ghostly feel to it.”

Stones Throw x Fool’s Gold Discotheque

Posted on Jul 26th, 2010 by Mr Goldbar

This year during Coachella, we got together with our friends from Stones Throw for one fine evening of “disco, boogie and house music” (as the hand-drawn flyer advertised) from Peanut Butter Wolf, The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak and Dave1), Mayer Hawthorne, Jokers Of The Scene, James Pants, and Chris Bag Raiders. Aloe Blacc was on mic duties throughout the evening, and, as you can see from the video highlight reel, a groovy time was had by all!

The night went so well, in fact, that we decided to base a whole tour around it: the Stones Throw x Fool’s Gold Discotheque, featuring Peanut Butter Wolf, A-Trak, J Rocc and Nacho Lovers (alongside DJ sets from some very special guests: Treasure Fingers, Holy Ghost!, Mayer Hawthorne and more) kicking off in Chicago with a Lollapalooza afterparty on August 6th and then traveling to San Francisco, Portland, and wrapping up with a very special boat party in Vancouver. Check the lineups and details after the jump! Read More
