Yours Truly sat down with Ramona Gonzalez, the powerhouse behind Nite Jewel, to talk about her new album, One Second of Love, released earlier this week! It’s a behind-the-scenes look at the the album’s composition, from the chord structures and lyrical birth to the awesome mic engineer. Ramona digs into “She’s Always Watching You,” sharing detail on the relationships and interactions that drove the song and the album as a whole. Watch it HERE or click on the photo above. She also recently gave an incredibly insightful interview to Vulture. You’ll definitely want to it read it. As always, Ramona tells it like it is.

With the new album out, Ramona’s in full motion. She’ll hit the road this next week, heading down to Austin’s SXSW for performances at the Secretly Canadian Showcase, Fader Fort, Urban Outfitters Party and more. After SXSW, you can see her live with Chairlift. Full tour schedule HERE.

Porcelain Raft Unveils New Video for “Something In Between”

Porcelain Raft unveils the new video for “Something In Between,” the B-side to the “Unless You Speak From Your Heart” 7-inch, out next Tuesday, February 21st. With its “surprising swagger,” Pitchfork just named “Unless You Speak From Your Heart” Best New Track. You can pre-order HERE.

The video follows suit with a series Mauro Remiddi is creating for his recently released album, Strange Weekend. He says, “A few months ago I filmed the billboard you see at the beginning of the video. I forgot about those images I took until a week ago, while driving back after filming the video for ‘Unless You Speak From You Heart’, we saw the same exact billboard collapsed on the BQE, very close to where I live. That structure consisted of two different billboards that don’t face each other but are connected somehow. ‘Something In Between’ feels like the right title for that.”

Porcelain Raft is on tour NOW in Europe with M83. He’ll be back in the States later this spring with Youth Lagoon. See all dates HERE.
