Tobias Jesso Jr. is a damn good songwriter, that's for sure. Taking a lot from the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, and Lennon's solo work (and I mean a lot), Goon (2015) is a little marvel of classic songwriting, and sounds far more mature and polished than the typical debut.

In Can't Stop Thinking About You, I almost expect to hear Lennon start singing "Here comes the Sun King...", but am greeted with something more along the lines of Something, and all of the songs on the album are like that, they sound familiar, despite being original. Go listen to it right now.
