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”?

“Anything 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.

But a great list otherwise.

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…

This album…

“he is trying to keep up with his 8yr old bro who is also going way deep into computers already, dunno where they get it from”

yeah I dunno where they get it from either rich!

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.
