Tobias Jesso Jr. has released Pitchfork Best New Music debut LP, Goon. Written on a piano at his parents’ house in North Vancouver, Goon is an honest document of a modern songwriter. Drawn in by the strength of Jesso’s songwriting craft, producers Chet “JR” White (Girls), Patrick Carney (Black Keys) and Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Sky Ferreira, The XX), strove to find a way to honour the songs’ emotional pulse without overpowering their rawness.
Tobias recently made his TV debut on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon performing Goon highlight, “How Could You Babe”. On the eve the album’s release, Tobias performed “Without You” on Conan. Next, see him in person on March 22 in Toronto at The Drake and March 30 in Vancouver at Electric Owl as he makes his way across North America on his first headlining tour.
