Let the Record Show, the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl, continues its third season today, as hosts Mike Pizzo and Warren Peace speak with Stones Throw alum and one-half of Tuxedo, Mayer Hawthorne.

From the classic doo-wop stylings of The Festivals to the lush melodies of musical antiheroes Steely Dan, Mayer’s song selections draw a clear line to the sounds of his own discography, along with some deep cut selections from fallen idols J. Dilla and Prince.

Mayer Hawthorne’s appearance on Let the Record Show marks the 22nd episode in the series and the seventh episode released this year, following each Masta Ace & Marco Polo, Georgia Anne Muldrown, Lil Jon, Kurupt, Just Blaze, and Flosstradamus. Season 3 of Let the Record Show will continue in the coming weeks with Cut Chemist, Murs, and more.
