Aspiring writers are often told to write about what they know and it’s an adage that Tobias Jesso Jr has taken to heart.

Yes, it’s another young singer/songwriter mining the classic balladry of classic singer/songwriters. But oh boy, he does it so well I don’t care. Ignore if you hate that melodic sentimentality Macca sprinkles like icing sugar on candy floss.
