When Mayer Hawthorne set out to create one of his signature playful music vids for “Your Easy Lovin’ Ain’t Pleasin’ Nothin’,” the final product got Bob Fosse-freaky with one uninterupted shot of the soulster and a posse of swim suit-clad dancers cavorting around in a lush Alta Dena backyard.

Can this video actually lessen the late-July heat a few degrees? And is that mysterious man-in-black actually the artist known as Folerio (as director Henry DeMaio tells us), or is it Stones Throw Records head honcho Peanut Butter Wolf in cheap clothing?
