Please welcome the great Ramona Gonzalez, aka Nite Jewel (and a member of the two funkiest duos on the West Coast, with Droop-E + DāM-FunK respectively, AMTHST and Nite-Funk), who will be running things here on GvsB all day. Her beautiful and very emotional new LP Liquid Cool is out today on her own label, Gloriette, so we asked Ramona to take over the site for the occasion to share some of her favorite things.
