Listening to Nite Jewel, the Los Angeles duo of Romona Gonzalez and Emily Jane, is like taking a narcotics-fueled back-to-the-future journey into the heart of electronica. Want proof? Download “Weak For Me,” from of Nite Jewel’s latest album, Good Evening (released in March on Human Ear). The track offers a deconstructed throwback to ’80s dance pop with a thick coating of Gonzalez’s at-times incomprehensible and trace-like vocals. Be sure to catch Nite Jewel this summer as it tours the U.S. with Telepathe and Abe Vigoda.
