‘Sob Rock’ marks Mayer’s first album in four years, following 2017’s ‘The Search For Everything’. On it, the singer-songwriter pays homage to the ’70s and ’80s with tracks like ‘Last Train Home’ and ‘Shot In The Dark’. The 10-track record also features his 2018 feel-good pop rock gem ‘New Light’, alongside the slow-burning ‘I Guess I Just Feel Like’.
In a four-star review of the album, NME’s Will Lavin called it a “stimulating body of work with ample substance, but it doesn’t take itself too seriously”. “Less focused on his innate individuality, it’s a John Mayer passion project that toasts to the good old days, when musicians were more inclined to follow instincts and feelings than clicks and likes.”
Meanwhile, ‘Sling’ is the long-awaited sophomore album from Clairo, who made a breakthrough in 2019 with her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Immunity’. The new album was awarded five stars from NME’s Rhian Daly, who lauded it as a record that finds Claire Cottrill doing what she does best.
