Music Monday: The Search For Everything Wave Two

 

Still Feel Like Your Man
Emoji of a Wave
Helpless
Roll it on Home

February 24th John Mayer released the second wave of The Search For Everything – another 4 tracks. (The 3rd wave will be the full album drop in April)  Like the first wave, there is something familiar about these songs – yet new and different all at the same time.  I am absolutely obsessed with the track “Helpless” and I think left to my own devices I can listen to it on repeat all day long.  I am just thinking about how amazingly awesome it will be live and hoping he will play it next month when I go see him!!  In “Still Feel like Your Man” there was a sample that I had recognized “Ever since the day we met…” from a 1996/1997 Primitive Radio Gods song – but then realized that the PRG clip was a sample as well – from BB King – which makes a lot more sense that that would be what John was sampling.  It’s kind of crazy how many random 1996/1997 songs I have embedded in my brain from too much MTV as a kid.

I think that I love Wave 2 more than Wave 1 and if this trend continues then I guess that means that the rest of the album is going to be even better… Looking forward to it!! So excited that John is back.
