Approved: Nite Jewel – One Second Of Love (Peaking Lights remix)

CMU Approved

Nite Jewel

So, ‘One Second Of Love’ is at first glance the most uncompromisingly ‘pop’ moment (and title track) of Ramona Gonzalez aka synthsmith Nite Jewel’s debut album. Under Wisconsin dub couple Peaking Lights’ direction, however, the original is spun adrift amid time signature shifts and sluggish-sounding production touches, almost as if it begins to play backwards part-way through.

To the remix’s credit, if you consider the Nite Jewel version – with its stark electronic strokes and celestial, choirgirl-ish vocals – to be a little too clean-cut for its own good, it’s pleasant to hear that sharp edge splintered and worn back to a woozy nub. At least, I think it is.

With Peaking Lights’ ‘One Second’ remix free to download via Gorilla Vs Bear, you can then hear the duo’s own new LP, the previously reported ‘Lucifer’, upon its release via Weird World on 18 Jun.
