Song of the Day: Chris Lee - In Yellow Moonlight

I got this song off of a CMJ compilation many years ago, and I put it on a mix CD. However, I never wrote down the name of the song, and the track listing for my CD has a blank line at #14. Every time I listened to that CD, I'd hear this song and wonder what the hell it was. Luckily, I thought I remembered that it was Chris Lee, so I recently added a bunch of his stuff on Grooveshark, and when this song started playing, it was a revelation.

"In Yellow Moonlight" owes a lot to Jeff Buckley, as does most of Chris Lee's catalog. And while his voice isn't as amazing as Buckley's (whose is?), he pulls off some pretty cool multi-tracked vocals.
