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.

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

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 (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

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 (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.

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:

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

Forget You and I is gorgeous.

Trip Maker, Tuesday, 21 September 2010 13:31 (six years ago) Permalink

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.

a tenth level which features a single castle (tipsy mothra), Wednesday, 22 September 2010 04:38 (six years ago) Permalink

three months pass...

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 (six 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 (six years ago) Permalink

it does go for crazy money though, yeah

^ 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 (two months 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 (two months ago) Permalink

Yeah this might be my favorite since One Second days

calstars, Saturday, 6 May 2017 01:03 (two months ago) Permalink

This album is so good

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

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

^ Awesome, calstars. "Real Low" is beautiful.

very much in character but i love this record

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

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

Pretty bummed I can't see her tomorrow night cuz I'm unemployed/broke. That's life

Unchanging Window (Ross), Monday, 10 July 2017 23:15 (two weeks ago) Permalink

album's been growing on me, might have to give last year's ep another shot.

Moodles, Tuesday, 11 July 2017 01:58 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Moodles, you mean Nite-Funk? Yeah that's a good one and indicative of where she ended up on this new one. Turns out I'm seeing her tonight after all, so stoked - one of my favourite artists

Unchanging Window (Ross), Tuesday, 11 July 2017 18:03 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I should give that one another shot too, but I was thinking of Liquid Cool, which I forgot was a full album.

Moodles, Tuesday, 11 July 2017 18:18 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Saw her last night and she was great. Duo with a keyboardist which allows Ramona more of an open air to sing and not play keys primarily. She's a wicked musician and a great singer, particular highlights were a blistering version of "Running Out of Time" and "What Did He Say?"

Also "Obsession" EP has become the dark counterpoint to "Real High". It contains many of the same tracks but is much more sullen and comedown than the LP. "Real Low" revisits the title track from her last LP in instrumental form and is lovely.
