One of my easy picks for one of the top 10 records of the year is Tobias Jesso Jr.'s Goon. And I know why I love it so much. It's totally ripped from the playbook of 70s singer-songwriters like Harry Nillson and Jim Croce, and I'm all about "Time In A Bottle." And the Canadian crooner stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to play two tracks from his gorgeous record, "Crocodile Tears," and "Hollywood." The full brass section seals for "Crocodile Tears" only solidifies my opinion that more bands need instruments besides guitars and drums, but the somber piano melodrama of "Hollywood" also hits you right in the heart.
