Nite Jewel is the performing moniker of Ramona Gonzalez. She is a composer, songwriter, and multimedia artist from Los Angeles, California, where she has exhibited a number of video and sound installation pieces. The Nite Jewel project is a combination of revisionist Bronx pop and hazy musical impressionism. This latest EP for Italians Do It Better features "Want You Back", a sparkling, hazy electro-pop / oddball post-disco song sounding like it's been made on vintage 80s keyboards. We get two mixes of this, plus two versions (English! Spanish!) of B-side gem "All Out Of Order", a slo-mo electronic groover which gives Ramona's vocal the vocoder treatment.
