In mid-August, Seattle alt-pop buzzmaker Jaymes Young introduced himself to our pages with Moondust, a highlight off his recently-released digital album. If that reader-approved jam didn’t sell you on the project, well, you’re one tough customer. But if there’s anything that’ll break through your inexplicable wall of resistance against quality music, it’s Young’s latest feature, Northern Lights. A project standout specially selected by the DJBooth staff, this cut finds the artist paying tribute to an alluring, yet self-destructive woman. As usual, he handles production as well as vocals, crafting a moody, majestic synth beat to accompany his understated verses. Has this appetizer left you hungry for more? Of course it has—so go ahead and click here to cop Dark Star for free in the Booth.
