Jaymes Young is an artist that you want to know. I happen to see this track over at Pigeons and Planes this morning, as part of their stellar “15 Free Songs That You Should Download Right Now” series they drop every Sunday. After downloading the song, I noticed that there was a link to the Jaymes Young soundcloud page where you can download his entire album for free, which I did almost immediately.
There isn’t a lot known about JY other than that he is originally from Seattle but now calls Los Angeles home, and that he is making a lot of noise in the music scene. This release is free and its a mixture of R&B, alt rock, a pinch of dub, quiet storm and something all his own. The album bangs. Great Sunday music too. Hit up his official site www.jaymesyng.com for the complete “Dark Star” download.
