Jam of the Week: John Mayer – Love on the Weekend

John Mayer - Love on the Weekend single (600x338)If you’re going to hitchhike across the United States, you’d do well to bring some John Mayer with you. (And not only because his instrumental contribution to Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange is still one of the greatest one-minute instrumental interludes of recent memory.) The music of this Connecticut guitarist and rock singer conjures up idyllic visions of America’s wild lands.

Love on the Weekend is a romantic driving-home-to-see-my-baby track. Nothing more. Yet, with vocals akin to Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones and a comforting guitar rhythm, it’s well suited to winter’s dark days and early nights.

Love on the Weekend is out now on Columbia Records.
