Our take

by Angus

By the time this album was released, Grace Jones’ cultural cache as a model, actress, and fashion icon had almost eclipsed her musical output. But then came Nightclubbing. Far from the disco that surrounded her in early–80s New York clubs, the snarling spirit of reggae–tinged new wave drives an album that sees classics of years previous reimagined in startling ways.

The title track, penned by David Bowie and Iggy Pop just four years previous, is unforgettably sparse in its arrangement. Jones’ reverb–tinged vocals ring from all corners of your speakers, her presence looming large over the track and haunting these songs like the ghost of Studio 54.
