Album Review: Mayer Hawthorne's "Where Does This Door Go"

I really can't say enough about this album, Rolling Stone gave it a scathing review but I find it refreshing. Mayer Hawthorne takes you back to the sound of 60s and 70s soul but brings it to today with relevant lyrics. Musically this album is amazing, multiple producers, bands, and Mayer Hawthorne himself contribute to the musical back drop. And even though so many people contributed to this album it all fits together perfectly to make one cohesive project. Lastly I'll talk about the lyrics, and this is a subject I'm huge on, an album isn't good or great to me unless the lyrics have substance, contain a unifying theme that ties the album together, and are catchy/memorable.... This album does all of that. So that's enough from me, go get the album! DJ Black rabbit approved!

Check out the mini documentary on the making of the album below 

The StankFace Chronicles

So what is a StankFace and what are The StankFace Chronicles? Im glad you asked, a StankFace is the look on your face when you hear or see something incredible for the first time, its like you smelled a foul odor but its actually your body's reaction to something new and great. As Run DMC would say: "Not Bad meaning bad but bad meaning good".

Now The StankFace Chronicles are a collection of songs/edits that have personally made my face go Stank. Now what makes the StankFace Chronicles different than mixes you might have heard in the past is the fact that there are no genre boundaries, we will travel from Hip-Hop, to House, to Soul, to Top 40 in one Episode.

I made this series for the music lovers only, its here to expand boundaries and knock down the walls we put up that don't allow us to listen to different type of music. So join me in this musical journey….
