Listen to their second album that came out last year, ‘The Night is Young’. Incredible pop album. I was surprised that it was ignored by basically everyone.

props to Stereogum for the great continued coverage of Tobias. This was a great interview. The fact that there were 40+ demos lying around on Youtube at one point makes my head hurt in a good way. Also very nice to hear the story behind True Love staying off the record!

Maybe it’s “For You”?

If you watch the video they’re actually playing a hybrid version of You Only Live Once and I’ll Try Anything Once. So cool.

“…he was nervous that he opens the album with his ex-girlfriend’s name (Mary Ann) and expects to hear from her about it.”

‘I Can’t Stop Thinking About You’ is Track 1! My favorite demo. Awesome.

First song in 2014 that’s lived up to my own ridiculous hype. Most anticipated album of 2015. I love that his producers are expanding the songs, not cutting them down. The demo was two minutes shorter! Those punching drums! THOSE HORNS.

I wonder if this is the closing track…

November 3, 2014 on Aphex Twin Doubles Down On 9/11 Truther Comments, Shares Music By His 6-Year-Old Son

I cannot wait, honestly. This guy has absolutely captivated me since the first moment I heard him, since then I’ve gathered everything I can by him. I just got the third demo (‘Hollywood’, mentioned in the P4K article) yesterday in the mail. My expectations are so unreasonably high for this LP.

October 22, 2014 on Tobias Jesso Jr. Preps Debut Goon With Ariel Rechtshaid, Patrick Carney, Chet “JR” White

That’s my video!! I would have taken a longer one but I was basically standing at their feet, so it felt kind of awkward. Incredible, incredible show. They played three new songs.

I listen to it almost every night before I go to sleep. When I get in bed I’m usually onto disc 2, and when you lower the volume to just the right amount it creates an incredible effect, you only hear certain tones and notes. I also just walk around town at night moping a lot, and Rhubarb, Lichen and Stone in Focus are all time greats for that particular activity.

Definitely not, but Nine Types of Light definitely marked a step towards more concrete lyricism and less abstract concepts, and this looks to continue that path, which I’m fine with. NTOL was a great record and I’ve enjoyed both tracks from Seeds immensely.

October 7, 2014 on TV On The Radio – “Careful You”

Actually that was all pretty standard fare as far as Julian on late night TV goes. This performance was mildly incredible though, he really gave it his all.

I think this article was written before that tweet (mentioning 2nd day of recording you’re referring to) was tweeted.

September 19, 2014 on Stream Julian Casablancas + The Voidz Tyranny

from GQ: “Casablancas nevertheless maintains that Tyranny has strong commercial potential, and who knows, maybe it does—I find myself listening to one song, “Nintendo Blood,” over and over again, all tired and sweet nostalgia, like something from a John Hughes movie. “
