"When we last left Mayer Hawthorne, he was the darling of the retro funk/hip-hop set, hitting falsettos over classically-arranged soul and tweaked drum breaks. The new single No Strings is Hawthorne gently evolving into his own man. The dusty ambiance of the past may be cleaned up a tad, but fear not, he’s keeping a toe in the old school jam — sharp-eared crate diggers will notice a slight interpolation of Delegation’s “Oh Honey” weaved in to No Strings. Vocally, Mayer maintains his Casanova edge, smoothly opining about a woman’s relationship status in that unusual, individual singing style of his. No Strings appears on his second album How Do You Do." -- iTunes Store
