Tobias Jesso Jr. – Hollywood

I can’t remember the last time I’ve been so instantly taken in by a song and artist I otherwise know nothing about. From the first listen Hollywood reminded me of Billy Joel’s New York State of Mind (apparently Jeremy Larson at Pitchfork feels the same way). It’s hard to pull of a song so simple and classic sounding without veering in to the well-worn and over-done. Tobias Jesso Jr. pulls it off.

Also listen to his Take Away Show:
