Just one thing I was thinking about as I was getting on the copter (J0hn D.), Thursday, 16 April 2009 09:11 (eight years ago) Permalink

i need to check this out

baaderonixx, Thursday, 16 April 2009 09:20 (eight years ago) Permalink

It's only available on vinyl, right? I love all the IDIB stuff (a lot) but this one hasn't appeared for sale on iTunes or eMusic or anything. I have heard one song on a sampler and it was really, really great. Can't get enough haunting icy horror movie soundtrack-y stuff.

i think i like "universal mind" much better than everything else on here, and sonically it's quite an outlier. the rest is there but doesnt do much for me

europeen handball (k3vin k.), Thursday, 16 April 2009 15:18 (eight years ago) Permalink

its available on CD too! or it was--may be sold out. mike had it at the italians store for a while. the album is actually out on human ear (vinyl) and gloriette (cd), not italians... she just has done a couple 12" w/ them, plus opened for glass candy a couple times.

A+ album

Whiney G. Weingarten, Thursday, 16 April 2009 15:31 (eight years ago) Permalink

still waiting on "want you back" 12" on idib. i will flatly not hear most of this summer's best songs but it is the kind of thing i want to christen THIS SUMMER'S SUMMEREST JAM.

lp is a real grower. the lover cover used to fade by but its slink has swayed me.

corps of discovery (schlump), Thursday, 16 April 2009 15:34 (eight years ago) Permalink

the album is actually out on human ear (vinyl) and gloriette (cd), not italians...

aha... looks like it's the reverse: Human Ear has the CD, but it's still listed as a "pre-order" (even though the release date is listed as December 25th, 2008). It's $12. The vinyl on Gloriette is sold out. Another Google link showed there was some other CD-R thing (different from the album) sold exclusively through the Other Music site last year, but that's all gone.

Is it not really worth it, money-wise, for small labels like IDIB/Gloriette/Human Ear to sell stuff digitally? Or why else wouldn't they?

Mike was putting the IDIB stuff on iTunes for a while, but the newest ones (Bottin, Nite Jewel, Twisted Wires) haven't shown up on there.

whoops yeah, youre right

the CD-R that was other music only is mostly stuff that ended up on good evening i think

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

^^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

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.

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.

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".

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

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.

"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.

OK wow I love her again

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 21 March 2017 19:46 (three months ago) Permalink

Nite Jewel's last full length was pretty decent (particularly like "Running Out of Time"). Opening with "Nothing But Scenery" was an odd choice though as it feels like the album loses momentum instantly.

Carlotta's Portrait (Ross), Tuesday, 21 March 2017 21:48 (three months ago) Permalink

Do all the LA artists go to the same beach up the coast to shoot their videos? I feel like I just saw one like this starring weyes blood.

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 (two months 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 (two months ago) Permalink

I thought it was "the answer is no"

calstars, Wednesday, 5 April 2017 01:58 (two months ago) Permalink

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

calstars, Sunday, 30 April 2017 16:55 (one month 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 (one month 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 (one month ago) Permalink

Yeah this might be my favorite since One Second days

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.
