Nite Jewel – ‘One Second of Love’ [full album stream]

LA star shines brighter than ever before on new album we're calling a modern soul classic.


Words by: Ruth Saxelby

Los Angeles artist Ramona Gonzalez aka Nite Jewel has long been an acclaimed fixture on the city’s lo-fi scene, releasing many lovely if a little meandering records, but on her new studio album ‘One Second of Love’ she finally steps into diamond-cut focus. And the result is simply stunning. ‘Timeless’ gets bandied about far too often but it’s the word I just can’t get away from right now. That’s not to say it doesn’t feel fresh or new, because it does. ‘One Second of Love’ is a very modern soul classic that speaks directly on matters of the heart, and as such is one it’s scarily easy to fall hard for.

Secretly Canadian will release Nite Jewel ‘One Second of Love’ on 5th March 2012

If you missed it earlier, you can listen to fellow LA artist Julia Holter’s new album ‘Ekstasis’ in full now too.
