Christmas has passed, we're done with our leftovers and want something different to snack on. Thank goodness for Mayer Hawthorne, who decided to share part of the world with us and satisfy our hunger and thirst with his latest offering, the mix Christmas Caipirinhas. While on the Brazilian leg of his tour, Hawthorne went crate digging and picked out some great bossa nova and samba tracks for our aural pleasure. In the description of this quick mix, Hawthorne states, "Brazilian vinyl is frequently beat up and scratched so if the record skip, don't trip." He definitely didn't skip a beat when he put this mix together. If you're a connoisseur of old school Brazilian music, you'll find artists like Doris e Miltinho, the Tamba Trio, Emilio Santiago and many more. If you're not a connoisseur, the mix is eclectic and worth listening to. We can't wait for his next trip to see what other music he'll educate us on, but while he's back in the states you can catch Mayer Hawthorne and Quadron on tour in early 2014. In the mean time, fix yourself a tropical drink, close your eyes and take a trip with Hawthorne and his Christmas Caipirinhas.
