Jill Cunniff, former frontwoman for all-female downtown hipsters Luscious Jackson, has her first solo album, City Beach, coming out in October. I just came across some MP3s on MySpace and have mixed feelings. The first two songs are ok; they're a little light and wispy and I was expecting a little more punch, which kind of came with the third track, "NYC Boy." With its computer enhancements, sampling, horns and Jill's breathy vocals, it reminds me a lot of Luscious Jackson, which broke up back in, what, 1999?! Maybe that's why I like it. I'll have to wait to hear more music to make a full judgment.
Check out NYC Boy.
