    Tobias Jesso Jr. - "Hollywood"

    Much of the charm of the music that Tobias Jesso Jr. released before "Hollywood" (namely "Just A Dream" and "True Love") was its intimate, lo-fi sound, just piano and vocals with the faint hiss from an old 8-track recorder in the background. "Hollywood," the first official single from Tobias' album, is a little more polished and even has a stirring horn section towards the end, but the honest, personal lyricism and timeless songwriting still shines through.—Constant Gardner
