This posted has been updated since its original posting.

Recently, the synth-funk stalwart act Nite Jewel announced a big step forward in its career. The L.A. band, masterminded by Ramona Gonzalez, inked a deal with the renowned indie Secretly Canadian for a new album, after releases on respected smaller labels such as Italians Do It Better, Mexican Summer and Gloriette.

Now that forthcoming album, "One Second of Love," has an official release date of March 6. The album's title track, streaming here, finds Gonzalez forgoing a lot of the reverb and delay that typically accompany her voice. It's the most direct and clarified electro-sass track of her career. 

UPDATE: Nite Jewel has also announced a live set for the Mondrian Sessions concert series at the West Hollywood Mondrian Hotel on Dec. 16.
