The LA scene revolving around Ariel Pink churns out the kind of music you might expect of a place that’s as suffused with irony and weed smoke as it with sunshine and smog. Nite Jewel’s Ramona Gonzalez, as well as her husband and bandmate (and Haunted Graffiti member) Cole M. Greif-Neill, are key players in this scene. Gonzalez’s early work fell in line with Pink’s warped, AM radio funk aesthetic, and could justly be described as “dance music you can’t actually dance to.” However, Gonzalez is a sonic chameleon, always adapting to her changing surroundings, and while her latest album, One Second of Love, retains the slinky retro vibes of yore, it also finds her moving in a cleaner-sounding and poppier direction.

NO CEREMONY ///:
These “mysterious Mancunians” are any typographer’s worst nightmare; apart from the slashes in their name (that cause an infinite redirect loop on their last.fm page), they also like to name their songs ‘DELIVERME’, ‘HURTLOVE’ or ‘BREAKINGHEARTS’. Using cold keyboard loops, distorted beats and warped vocals, NO CEREMONY /// shape their bleak and grim aural world.
