NITE JEWEL

Over the past few years, LA' s Nite Jewel has honed its pop-funk craft across releases from Italians Do It Better, Mexican Summer and LA's own Gloriette Records. In that time, Ramona Gonzalez's airy but often distant voice has found new gravitas and charisma. Meanwhile, the synth lines have gotten more agile and the bass pops tighter and tighter. The stuttered 80s synth R&B melodies unfold into one another here in ways both giddy and deceivingly nonchalant. This maturation and evolution will all come to a head in early 2012 when Secretly Canadian will release Nite Jewel's proper full-length follow up to her brilliant 2008 LP, Good Evening.

Nite Jewel Announces Reissue of Debut Album ‘Good Evening’


We’re stoked to announce the reissue of Nite Jewel’s debut release. Titled Good Evening, the album was originally released on Gloriette Records in 2008 and recorded while Ramona was still a college student. Out of print on vinyl for a few years, the reissue comes with two bonus tracks: a cover of Can forebear Inner Space’s “The Kamera Song” and DāM-FunK remix of original track “What Did He Say.” Stream the bonus tracks for a limited time at Gorilla vs. Bear or below! Good Evening is set for release on November 11!

Check out what’s playing in Ramona’s headphone! RBMA Radio shares the details.
