“Lover” (Video)


    Despite being one of the more compelling tracks on Nite Jewel’s debut full-length, Good Evening , this cover of Roxy Music’s "Lover" sounds like it could soundtrack one of those phone sex commercials that seem to dominate television at two in the morning. It would seem that the group’s aware of the song’s cheesy lean, cause the track’s accompanying video opens with Nite Jewel collaborator Emily Jane gazingly fondly at a Conch Shell, and cuts to a prismatically-haloed Ramona Gonzalez hamming it up, singing luridly to the camera, covered by blowing silk sheets, and alternately lounging on a plush white rug. All they forgot is the 800 number at the bottom of the screen. [Pitchfork]
