Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Luscious Jackson's debut EP may be brief--seven songs packed into 24 minutes--but it has plenty to offer thematically as well as sonically. With its low-key, hip-hop grooves and dense, sound-collage production (check that clarinet riff on "Life of Leisure"), the Luscious ladies offer varied perspectives on the New York boho lifestyle. Three of the songs hail from the demo recording that landed the group their recording deal, while four others were recorded specifically for the project. All of them offer engaging, funky fun. As to whether or not the group ever found Manny, though, you'd have to presume they did--the disc was named for a boyfriend of guitarist Gabby Glaser's mother. --Daniel Durchholz

CD Reviews

A SOUNDTRACK FOR N.Y.C.
Dave Wade | NYC | 08/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"1979. 123rd St., Manhattan - A young Puerto Rican woman is looking out of her window. Is she waiting for someone? South Bronx - a teen leaves his apartment with spray paint cans in a dufflebag and heads to the IRT yards to tag up a dormant #3 train...Brooklyn - Manny slumps on the B train in a drug-induced stupor. If you could imagine music to fit these scenes it might sound something like Luscious Jackson. And, since the music of these 4 cool ladies defines catagorization, it is infinitely more fun to just let it create scenes in my mind. You'll find it happening to you too when you hear the beautiful and unique tracks on this EP. Tracks that are moody, funky, and above all else...URBAN."
Excellent!
