Ramona Gonzalez muses about the varying passages of love on her latest album as Nite Jewel, Real High, which she self-released on her own label, Gloriette Records. With her husband and longtime co-producer, Cole M.G.N., she surrounds her vocals with gauzy cloudbanks of synth. Gonzalez purrs with a velvety restraint, whether she’s confused by romantic mysteries (“Who U R”) or giving in completely to love (“Obsession”), and her sugary vocal yearning help to breathe life into the flat, simple lyrics. The retro synth-pop settings are carefully crafted to invoke a kind of nostalgia for Janet Jackson, one of Nite Jewel’s prime inspirations, but Gonzalez is that rare, pop-minded vocalist who also has a more adventurous side when collaborating with funktronica impresario Dâm-Funk and arty performer Julia Holter.
