  1. The Five One are hypnotizing me…nice flip of Vampire Weekend’s groove…the song I most want to hear again. Best of the 3.

    B.B.R. has some good energy.-#2 of the 3.

    Mayer H. is just ok–#3. Earth to buzzmakers…his stuff is all…just ok. Not great.

  2. The Mayer Hawthorne track is great! Definitely my favorite of the 3 songs. Very reminiscent of old Motown, classic soul.

    With that said, there’s some other great music here as well. I love The Five One’s flip Vampire Weekend’s “Kids Don’t Stand A Chance”.

    I like the Black Box Revelation track too… but it’s probably my least favorite of the 3.

    They’re all different, and great in their own way.
