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.

LSTN: Taken By Trees Premiere New Track on NPR

Taken By Trees release a brand new track, “Dreams,” from the forthcoming album Other Worlds. The song is available for streaming and download exclusively at NPR’s All Songs Considered, where it premiered earlier this afternoon. You can pre-order the 12″ single for “Dreams,” which features album, extended instrumental and dub versions of the track, starting today at SC Distribution. Other Worlds isn’t out until October 2, but you can watch the album trailer HERE.

Listen and download “Dreams.”

“I hardly remember my dreams these days. Sometimes, if I am lucky and I wake up very late, I find a thin film of another time or another life. I try desperately to capture this residue of a dream before it quickly fades. But the kind of dream I am referring to in this song is more like a sense of longing, a vision of a place where things are quiet, like floating in the ocean off of Hawaii.” -Victoria Bergsman of Taken By Trees

Yeasayer Premiere New Single “Longevity,” Pre-order Fragrant World

Yeasayer premiere a new single, “Longetivity,” off their forthcoming album, Fragrant World. The first proper single on the album exposes a new found edge in Yeasayer. Lyrically, they hold up a social mirror in a way that made punk so effective, while bathing the lurching and heaving rhythm in a mechanized and otherworldly soul. The melody emerges understated and clean to form a undaunted vision for new music. Stream “Longevity” below!
