Jaymes Young came floating back via Earmilk today, taking that thick silky voice to the nightclub lounge in “Fragments.” But even when he’s crooning Young keeps the lazy charisma in his voice, and this time around he’s backed by a heavy electronic samba that smooths the mood to a tranquil place. It’s restrained and refreshingly…quiet. I think they even snuck a clave in there.
The elegance continues when Jaymes Young releases his self-titled debut. We’ve already heard “Hold You Down,” “Dark Star,” and “Wondering.” The final pieces of the puzzle are soon to be in place with the 13-track album dropping August 20th. Stream “Fragments” below.
