Music Monday / Born and Raised

      5 Comments on Music Monday / Born and Raised

I keep planning to share one thing with you but then things change or a new album I can’t stop listening to comes out and I have to make a sudden change of plans.  This would be one of those times.

If you know John Mayer; if you like John Mayer, then I must urge you to seek out his newest album Born and Raised.  I’ve been hearing the single “Shadow Days” on the radio but was super excited when I saw the album was released.  And then I was bummed when I had to wait a couple days before it appeared on Spotify.

Yes I was so excited for the album but wanted to make sure I liked it enough to buy first.  I’m pretty sure that means I’m part of the reason the industry has a hard time selling records these days – except that I DO plan to buy the record!  It’s just that good!

I spent my time at home with this album on repeat as I relaxed and laid around writing and relaxing.  Now because this blog is all about my honest opinion, I must tell you this album isn’t one of those albums where John shows you this whole other side of him or his musicianship.  This is the John Mayer that we all know and love.  Personally, I’m okay with that.  But to each his own.  But you won’t know until you give it a listen.  So take a listen.

And can I just quickly say that John Mayer needs to cut his hair! I mean come on…you’re not at Berklee anymore. ha!

What new music have you listened to this week?

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE John Mayer and had no idea he had a new album out…totally need to check it out!

    As for new music: I’ve known about Iron & Wine for some time now, but ever since I heard his song “Love Vigilantes” I’ve become obsessed! I swear that man could sing a song about dog poo and I’d love it! Lol

    I somehow just discovered Metric. LOVE them. I listen to MPR’s The Current ( at work (streaming at and had heard a ton of their songs … didn’t realize it was them until last week.

    And gross, John Mayer. Your hair has turned into a hobo wonderland.
