You read it right, this is a big one from Stones Throw.

The second one coming from Aloe Blacc‘s 7-inch album entitled “Femme Fatale” – Aloe Blacc & Truth+Soul’s take on the Velvet Underground classic.

Mayer Hawthorne explains the story behind this record:

“I met Nottz at Nightlife’s Dilla Tribute in L.A. and we just kept in contact. I had always been a fan of Nottz since the 90s. He sent me a bunch of beats and at first I had no idea what to do with any of them, but eventually it hit me. I sang a hook for him on his album as well.

The song is a cover of a cat named Otis Leavill which is one of my all time fav soul sides, but relatively unknown 45. I don’t think Nottz even knew it. I actually even made up some of the words because no one could make out what he said in the original. ha!…”
