Hawthorne Headhunters - Myriad of Now [EP Stream] + "If You Were My Baby"
No, Hawthorne Headhunters is not a moshtape of Mayer Hawthorne and Herbie Hancock. If you pay attention to L.A. underground soul movements–or just read Okayplayer–you may know HH is the collective name of Cali via St. Louis innovators Black Spade and Coultrain. I could drop a bunch of erudite references to give you an idea of their sophisticated sound, but maybe better if you just stream their entire EP Myriad of Now below and mad-lib your own superlatives. MON is available on iTunes as of yesterday and will drop as a full-length album in early 2012. As a bonus, the first track–“If You Were My Baby (Reprise)”–is downloadable.
