Alt-R&B buzzmaker Jaymes Young, who will surely draw comparisons to Booth-favorite JMSN, has released his debut project, Dark Star.
Included on the free 13-track set are previously-featured selections "Moondust" and the project's title track, which both capture Young's unique brand of melancholy pop.
If Dark Star has you excited to see the Seattle native perform live, you're in luck. Beginning in late September, and running through the end of October, the artist/producer will be touring the US and UK in support of headlining act London Grammar.
