My Morning Download: “Are You Ready?” by Luscious Jackson


lusciousjackson Back in the Nineties the New York band Luscious Jackson – Jill Cunniff, Gabby Glaser, Vivian Trimble, and Kate Schellenbach – had more than their 15 minutes of fame. Signed by the Beastie Boys as the first band to their label, Grand Royal, the ladies released several albums and their debut In Search of Manny EP and had several well known songs including “Ladyfingers,” “Naked Eye,” and “CitySong.” Their music reflected the hip-hop and rock sounds of the New York City, and the all-girl band quite remarkably stood their ground in the Nineties mostly male rap-rock-grunge environment. The band broke up in 2000 and since then Cunniff and Glaser both released solo albums. Without Vivian Trimble, the rest of band has been working on a new album, via Pledge Music, a crowd funding platform that allows fans to financially contribute directly to musical projects. The band’s new album, Magic Hour, is being released on November 5th on their own City Song imprint. Below, in exchange for your e-mail address, download “Are Your Ready?” and listen to “Show Us What You Got.”
