Tuxedo - Thank You 7"

(Stones Throw, 2017)

This limited Record Store Day 2017 7" release would be right at home on either of Tuxedo's stellar modern boogie albums, Tuxedo and Tuxedo II.

Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One's collaboration may be better than anything the two have done individually. Tuxedo's soulful take on "boogie," the funky 80's version of disco that's just too good to be called "disco," might be better than any of the songs that they're clearly referencing.
