yeah I think "Good Evening" = "My CD" (the cdr thing) plus some bonus tracks off her 12"s

CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS FUCKING RECORD! So goddamn good!

ken taylrr, Friday, 31 July 2009 17:30 (seven years ago) Permalink

^^Exactly....252 listens in a week. "What Did He Say" is pretty damn special.

Spinspin Sugah, Friday, 31 July 2009 20:21 (seven years ago) Permalink

still haven't heard the album but the first 12" has been played all year since i got in like november i think. really good. i see it as a dark and moody take on all those great sassy female vocalled west end tracks like "another man"

is she good live? playing over here in august

so dreamy. "want you back" is like a melted fantasy of madonna.

flying squid attack (tipsy mothra), Sunday, 16 August 2009 04:53 (seven years ago) Permalink

her weakest track...the ONLY weak track.

Spinspin Sugah, Sunday, 16 August 2009 05:18 (seven years ago) Permalink

ha, no. the album does have some weakish tracks, but they don't bother me in the context of the album. but "want you back" is peak material. it's not afraid of itself.

Can't stop listening to Want You Back

Trip Maker, Thursday, 27 August 2009 22:27 (seven years ago) Permalink

that "artificial intelligence" song upthread is really nice. the synths are very nostalgic to me. they remind me of joe jackson or something. or like 80s yes.

i like the new song, bass is really huge and gets me

Want You Back is pretty awesome

dmr, Friday, 28 August 2009 06:13 (seven years ago) Permalink

yea - love want you back. not lo-fi at all compared to her other stuff

just sayin, Friday, 28 August 2009 07:58 (seven years ago) Permalink

Really loving Want You Back.

Love this. Heard from folks who saw her in London that it was a bit dull live, but I guess I can see it might. Great stuff though.

he's been dropping her name a bunch. makes so much sense now.

jaxon, Tuesday, 8 December 2009 22:59 (seven years ago) Permalink

Me and my dad love these two. This new wave of lo-fi/no-fi goodness keeps getting better and better. It's all very "cable access performance".

stop smoking that shit for once

quiet and secretively we will always be together (Steve Shasta), Thursday, 10 December 2009 07:02 (seven years ago) Permalink

I had high hopes for this but my goodness, is this ever the wrong end of the 80s for me

I do like the hook on the chorus, though, when her voice comes in and it's all pretty

it just reminds me of the "nightclub" scene in so many cop operas on telly in the late 80s

Karen Tregaskin, Thursday, 10 December 2009 10:29 (seven years ago) Permalink

good evening being reissued on stones throw?
http://www.stonesthrow.com/messageboard/index.php?showtopic=18121

also nite funk= whole album! (sorry if that's old news but i just assumed am i gonna make it was a 1 off)

no fear, Sunday, 25 April 2010 12:53 (seven years ago) Permalink

I assumed Nite-Funk as a one-off as well, but this news of a whole album is the kind of shit that gets me excited.

De que estas hablando? (Tannenbaum Schmidt), Sunday, 25 April 2010 13:22 (seven years ago) Permalink

There is going to be a Nite Jewel thread on the roof of a building in my town in a couple of weeks and I'm pretty stoked.
I just hope it gets some promotional help, or that the right few people tell their friends about it. It's the kind of event that could easily fly under the radar.

Trip Maker, Tuesday, 4 May 2010 16:25 (seven years ago) Permalink

Nite Jewel show.

Trip Maker, Tuesday, 4 May 2010 16:26 (seven years ago) Permalink

weird! i was just trying to think of nite jewel driving last night, keep meaning to investigate

the Rob Based god (M@tt He1ges0n), Tuesday, 4 May 2010 16:33 (seven years ago) Permalink

"Want You Back" is my favorite. I've only got a crummy rip of Good Evening, it'd be nice to hear that on vinyl.

new song "am i real?" w/ teen inc is really good:

speaking of teen inc, they rule. "fountains" is ridiculous:

akaky akakievich, Thursday, 29 July 2010 18:22 (six years ago) Permalink

you f o was pretty hard to get hold of though. some of the new one is revised versions of what was on it.

Earning your Masters in Library and Information Science is beautiful (schlump), Thursday, 29 July 2010 19:09 (six years ago) Permalink

what was that? new alb??

titchyschneiderhouserules (s1ocki), Thursday, 29 July 2010 19:13 (six years ago) Permalink

I figured it was maybe tour only. I got one from them on the road.

Trip Maker, Thursday, 29 July 2010 19:54 (six years ago) Permalink

that's how i bought teh first one

titchyschneiderhouserules (s1ocki), Thursday, 29 July 2010 19:56 (six years ago) Permalink

tour only, uh huh. some of it was on a japanese 7" too i think. i liked another horizon the most. think stones throw are rereleasing her LP, too.

this teen inc stuff sounds like level 42. not a knock of course

uptown churl, Friday, 30 July 2010 00:31 (six years ago) Permalink

teen inc is good when they have more than 2 songs we should give them a thread

Weak For Me is perfect. The rest of the songs tend to get a little too moody and lost.

coolsundays, Tuesday, 21 September 2010 19:41 (six years ago) Permalink

The newer stuff is much more consistent imo.

Trip Maker, Tuesday, 21 September 2010 19:42 (six years ago) Permalink

Heard an advance of the full thing...it's nice? Not deathless.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 27 March 2017 04:28 (two months ago) Permalink

Tell us more Ned...does it sound like the last one or is it brighter? Like the hypnagogic pop of her first one or less slanted?

New one not as upbeat as the other but still very welcome
Kind of wish I could make out the words though?

calstars, Wednesday, 5 April 2017 01:16 (one month ago) Permalink

Here's my attempt at most of it:

I saw you out
it was in a dream
you talked to me
but what did it mean?

took me home
sitting on the couch
it was dark
I was out

please don't let the light in
cuz we're trying
to find you in the space that's in between us
yeah

i still believe in space
cover up my eyes again
seem like you're away (?)

is it you (??)

....

the answer is love
the answer is love

....

Carlotta's Portrait (Ross), Wednesday, 5 April 2017 01:35 (one month ago) Permalink

I thought it was "the answer is no"

calstars, Wednesday, 5 April 2017 01:58 (one month ago) Permalink

Yeah I think it's "no". Seems like this album is a logical progression from Nite-Funk so far

Newest one "had to let me go" is the most funky of the singles so far:

Wish the Meters could play rhythm on it.

calstars, Sunday, 30 April 2017 16:55 (four weeks ago) Permalink

^ Nice track. "Obsession" EP has grown on me; it's uniformly chill which initially turned me off, but I found it compelling in the rain today. Sublime and insular, with the highlights "Real High" and "Real Low", gorgeous tracks with alien, aquatic synth bursts.

Carlotta's Portrait (Ross), Wednesday, 3 May 2017 23:55 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Haven't heard the EP but will ASAP

I also think this latest one is the one she's most invested and engaged in

calstars, Thursday, 4 May 2017 00:49 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah this might be my favorite since One Second days

calstars, Saturday, 6 May 2017 01:03 (three weeks ago) Permalink

This album is so good

Carlotta's Portrait (Ross), Monday, 8 May 2017 21:41 (two weeks ago) Permalink

"Clive" from One Second goes perfectly into Death In Vegas "Girls". Tracks separated at birth

very much in character but i love this record

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Friday, 12 May 2017 16:35 (two weeks ago) Permalink

this record is so dreamy and beautiful. i've loved her since good evening and it's so great to see her produce a record as solid and confident as this without losing her character, like brad said

joshywinty (josh), Friday, 19 May 2017 21:33 (one week ago) Permalink

This album is so good. I really wasn't that excited when I put it on as Liquid Cool didn't do a lot for me. I think this could be her best album.

kitchen person, Saturday, 20 May 2017 01:07 (one week ago) Permalink

Starting to think kitchen is right that this is her best album. It's gorgeous
