Nite Jewel Good Evening

When crafting the initial Nite Jewel tracks, Ramona Gonzalez put the beggars-can't-be-choosers concept to good use and employed a multi-track cassette recorder along with whatever instruments she could get her hands on. It follows then, that the resulting debut full-length from this two-woman outfit (which also includes multimedia artist Emily Jane) isn’t exactly easy to categorize. Lo-fi dance-pop might be the easiest label to slap on the release, but there’s a free-form element to the music on Good Evening that keeps this record compelling from start to finish. Shades of soul, R&B, and funk often peek through the layers of synthesizer, while Gonzalez and Jane maintain a cool, cheeky composure throughout.
