Track of the Day: Tobias Jesso Jr. – Hollywood

“I’ve done the best I could / but it think I’m gonna die in Hollywood” admits Vancouver-born songbird, Tobias Jesso Jr., halfway through his painful new single. For 6 minutes, self-doubt, pessimism and dejection flow slowly over piano keys and Jesso’s inimitable voice – a hopeless boyish croon. And as ‘Hollywood’ disintegrates into a din of flat and lifeless horns, it becomes clear that Jesso sees no relief after his woes. To him, Los Angeles has killed his career, and this is its dirge.
