Night Jewel

July 3rd, 2010

California native Ramona Gonzalez first began her transcendent minimalist dance-pop escapades in the privacy of her own home in Los Angeles. With the aid of her multitrack cassette recorder and whatever keyboards, drum machines, and other instruments that were available to her, she very quickly developed her own unique sound and began performing live in the L.A. area under the moniker Nite Jewel. Later teaming up with Cole M. Greif-Neill (formerly of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti) and Corey Lee Granet, the Nite Jewel act became a three piece band, touring alongside the likes of Deerhunter, Massive Attack, Little Dragon, and DaM-FunK. In August 2010, Nite Jewel will independently release a six song EP titled Am I Real?, in collaboration with Cole M. Greif-Neill (formerly of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti). Title track “Am I Real?” features a collaboration with Daniel and Andrew Aged from Teen Inc.

Nite Jewel  is also currently collaborating with DaM-FunK, among others, and working on her second album set for release in the winter of 2011. Listen to their new tracks

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti announces North American Summer tour

April 23rd, 2010

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti will be hitting New York on May 4 for a sold out show at the Mercury Lounge with R. Stevie Moore, one of Mr. Pink’s personal heroes – after a short European tour in June, the band will return to North America for a run of dates with Pearl Harbor and Magic Kids, launching in LA and wrapping up back near home at the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa.

The band’s 4AD debut record, Before Today, consists of twelve tracks (including the single “Round And Round”) and will be released worldwide on June 8th 2010 on CD, LP and digital formats.

Six months in the making, Before Todaywas recorded in part in Encino at the House of Blues (once Tito Jackson’s home studio) with Sunny Levine (Quincy Jones’ grandson) and Rik Pekkonen (Bill Withers, Seals & Crofts, Bread) as well as at the band’s home studios. The result is a beguiling mix of glam rock, West Coast funk and Merseybeat harmonies with a high-production sheen; a contrast to the corroded bedroom recordings that have fomented a fervent cult following over the past decade.

The outfit now consists of reclusive pop surrealist Ariel Pink (vocals) alongside Tim Koh (bass/vocals), Kenny Gilmore (guitar/vocals) and Aaron Sperske (drums/vocals).

Prior to the album, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti will release “Round And Round” (backed with “Mistaken Wedding”) as a limited edition 7″ and digital download single on April 26th. Fans can hear “Round And Round” on 4AD.com and new subscribers to the band’s mailing list can also download the track as a free MP3.
