Since Nite Jewel burst onto the scene with her single “What Did He Say,” she has developed into a confidently eccentric new wave synth artist embraced by one tastemaker (Mexican Summer) after another (Gorilla vs. Bear). She recently released her follow up album One Second of Love on Secretly Canadian (home of Yeasayer & The War On Drugs) to rave reviews by Pitchfork (7.1) and LA Weekly (“She employs just enough traditional structure to get her weird songs labeled as pop. It’s smart, like everything on “One Second of Love.”)
