Daily 2% - Chilled and Ready to Serve [Mayer Hawthorne]

This is your Daily 2% - Chilled and Ready to Serve. We will try to bring you one "chill" track every day. This is for when you get home and you are trying to unwind. You reach for that glass of wine or that unlit Black & Mild or maybe you reach for something more herbal. This track is for those times. We are just your milkmen and I'm here to make a delivery. Chill...

Today's delivery is from Mayer Hawthorne. His newest release, “Designer Drug” is the perfect song to end the working day on a happy note. Keeping it simultaneously modern and nostalgic in the way only he can, he mixes light humor about the designer drug use of this generation (name dropping MDMA and the college favorite, Adderall), with his deep love of an unidentified (although very lucky) gal. It's very much the Stones Throw alumni at his best- keeping it classy like a Michael Buble, but with enough cheeky-ness that he can still hold his own in the more underground scenes. While Justin Timberlake has become the face of soulful white guy crooning the blues, I'd say "Designer Drug" easily roundhouse kicks "Suit and Tie"in the face. Hopefully this is an indicator of what's more to come from the Michigan Native, as this song might be one of his best so far.  All I know is, Mayer Hawthorne might be talking about a girl as his drug, but this song might just be my drug of choice tonight.
