I don’t like this guy. At all. My reason is to quickly follow.
The way he sings in a whisper makes me imagine a man holding his cat’s front paws and making it dance, while he cooed much to the feline’s dismay, “You think you’re cooler than me.”
Anymeow, Mike Posner is from Southfield, Michigan, and as much as I seek to support local performers making it big, this guy – not so much.
To be honest, I originally thought his name was Mike Poser, and in a way under that belief, I appreciated his irony. Now he’s ironic in another way.
So here is A Handful Of local acts done good (not counting Motown, to make a point)… after the jump…

The White Stripes – Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground
The Verve Pipe – Freshman

The Suicide Machines – New Girl
The Von Bondies – C’mon C’mon
Anita Baker – Sweet Love
