  • Ida No
  • Johnny Jewel
RELATED PROJECTS:
  • Chromatics

Producer Johnny Jewel and vocalist Ida No are currently a duo churning out lush, elegant electro-pop that manages to maintain a DIY aesthetic.  And it's DAMN fun to dance to.  They still find ways to incorporate some elements of their earlier days as Glass Candy & the Shattered Theater, a crunchy, noisy, glam-rock disco outfit.  These days, however, the distorted no wave guitar is replaced by layered synth leads and a booming bass. Head over to Troubleman Unlimited, where you can find the latest from Johnny Jewel's and Mike Simonetti's Italians Do It Better label (including a limited vinyl issue of their celebrated After Dark comp and some releases by Johnny's Chromatics project).

Do I detect a Karen O. influence here? Or was Ida No the innovator and Ms. Orzolek picked up on the style? Or is it just a friggin' NYC thing that hicks like I are outside the gates of?

At any rate, if "It's Blitz" had as much bite to it as "Love Love Love", I'd sure as shit listen to it more than I have.

Danger music for when your sure the hangover is gone.
