Tobias Jesso Jr – Just A Dream

August 6, 2013

Is the first word of “Just A Dream” (“Yesterday”) sung by Tobias Jesso Jr, or Paul McCartney? That is the effect when you hear such a low-fi, minimalist track in this day and age. On this track, Tobias Jesso Jr is alone with his piano for a long four minutes and thirty seconds. In a sea of electronic, highly produced music, it’s always a joy to listen to raw sounds such as these. Just as Tallest Man On Earth creates that intimate feel with his voice and his guitar, Tobias Jesso Jr creates it with his piano. “Just A Dream” is the kind of track you can get lost in, not even realizing that the it’s already over.
