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

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.

Want You Back is pretty awesome

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

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.

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".

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

But that shit is bomb, Shasta...oh so bomb.

good evening being reissued on stones throw?

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 (six 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 (six 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.

Nite Jewel show.

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

"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.

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

i hadn't been paying attention and missed this whole EP, but it's gorgeous.

i think i'm just waiting til the next LP to see if she's kinda jumped the shark in terms of ditching her woozy futuristic bedroom-synths thing, in favour of overtly celebratory eighties music. i like it all just as much, but it seems like a weird, deliberate step, that doesn't usually bode well for musicians.

the new one is pretty jiving anyhow

schlump, Wednesday, 12 January 2011 17:14 (five years ago) Permalink

How many copies of Good Evening were made on vinyl? I wanna bid on one but don't wanna over pay.

a bunch, i thought?, in case you're still thinking about it. it's getting re-pressed on stones throw sometime, anyway.

she's collaborating with julia holter at the minute, which sounds like a good combo

your LiveJournal experience (schlump), Friday, 8 April 2011 12:29 (five years ago) Permalink

it does go for crazy money though, yeah

your LiveJournal experience (schlump), Friday, 8 April 2011 12:29 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah so heavy & unusual; bc it starts so unadorned it was v surprising to play the record & hear it, but it has shades of the weird repurposing mission nj records have generally, i think. i remember reading some interview w her forever ago where she talks abt synthetic sounds from the eighties having a second act, like there having been a literally creative phase in which instruments were invented but their use being sort of truncated by the limits of the era in which they were populated, & it's so hazy & kind of eerie to hear her duet in sync w/ chiming synth noise

schlump, Sunday, 19 June 2016 00:26 (four months ago) Permalink

agree, it's a very strange *sounding* album but can't put my finger on exactly how

calstars, Sunday, 19 June 2016 03:01 (four months ago) Permalink

i don't like the vocals

ejemplo (crüt), Monday, 20 June 2016 13:43 (four months ago) Permalink

Too much echo and reverb. There seems to be some good singing underneath all of tgat, but it's hard to tell.

Al Moon Faced Poon (Moodles), Monday, 20 June 2016 13:57 (four months ago) Permalink

Nite Funk is out today. Dam's jams are nice and Ramona plays a subdued role vocally for the most part.

i am just being difficult but i am enjoying this record so much !, + then halfway thru listening i remember the internet's ambivalence + kick a hole in the speaker, snap the arm from the turntable, take a bite out of the record + beat my chest wailing like harvey keitel. i saw her play w julia holter a few nights ago. it is such a good record, i think, + super interesting to hear her talk abt it existing as a kind fundamental full-circle nj record, like sharing so much dna w the first lp. the slow jams really grow on me too.

i bought the lp + read the v spare words for the first song i'd been getting hung up on, i still can't tell why it's spookin me so, living in this quiet zone. so gd !

schlump, Sunday, 3 July 2016 04:22 (three months ago) Permalink

im gonna go see her on wed im excited, not planning on listening to the new alb before that tho
