Nite Jewel Announces ‘One Second of Love’ LP, Drops Title Track

On March 6, Nite Jewel will follow up 2008′s magnificent Good Evening with her Secretly Canadian debut, One Second of Love. If Ramona Gonzalez’s earlier releases as Nite Jewel brought to mind the likes of Lisa Lisa or Debbie Deb on quaaludes, this new body of work may conjure up clearer images of the likes of Sade, Eurythmic-era Annie Lennox and Tracy Thorn. Produced with partner Cole M.G.N. (formerly of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti), the entire affair is pure, confident, singular-but-intricate and delightfully sophisticated. Both peeks we’ve been given at OSOL are clear indicators of this evolution. First, “She’s Always Watching You” (released this month on a 7″ via Your Truly’s Love Letters Inc. label) gave us spritely, giddy, whip-crack pop. Now, the title track, “One Second of Love” charges at us with its mutant-funk underpinnings and a maturity as yet unheard from a Nite Jewel release.
