Green Eyed Love is the downbeat album-closer from Michigan soul singer Mayer Hawthorne’s Stones Throw debut LP, A Strange Arrangement. On first blush its lyrics seem to suggest he’s got a thing with a tempestuous, ill-advised green-eyed girlfriend. Or with weed. The twist is that Mayer’s green comes not via girls or herb, but through slotted spoons and sugarcubes. A fix of absinthe later, Hawthorne’s watching lips grow out of bathroom tiles and girls get multiplied and colorized; not your average look for soul-rooted music, coming from a guy who’s not your average look for a soul-rooted artist. – stereogum
I’ve been slowly getting around to checking out Mayer Hawthorne’s music, but the closest I’ve come has been a sampler to A Strange Arrangement. Definitely some dope music nonetheless.
