after appearances on italians do it better nite jewel releases her debut album on no pain in pop. she is a composer, songwriter, and multimedia artist from los angeles, california, where she has exhibited a number of video and sound installation pieces. the nite jewel project is a remarkable combination of revisionist bronx pop and hazy musical impressionism. like her ex-pop peers, ariel rosenbergand geneva jacuzzi, she records solely on portable 8-track cassette deck, often composing her songs by layered tape edits. in nite jewel's case, however, the quality of her chosen medium seems to be neither a means nor an end, but rather a device to lend an ethereal kind of efficacy to the golden age of alternative disco. as influences, she has cited dance floor greats lisa lisa and cult jam and debbie deb, '90s r&b, as well as experimental, new age, and shoe gaze.
