Luscious Jackson frontwoman Jill Cunniff is set to release her first solo album, ‘City Beach’ on 20 February in the US, with a UK release to follow shortly afterwards. Cunniff says of the album, which apparently has some Brazilian influences: “I chopped-up samples, hid them slightly, turned them around… fiddled with and re-worked sounds and vocals. I learned how to record my voice better. When you record yourself it’s a very un-self-conscious process.”
Luscious Jackson broke up in 2000, but recently announced plans to reunite, and according to reports the band are currently working on an album of children’s songs. A greatest hits compilation is to be released in February next year.
