Jill Cunniff is from luscious jackson, I listened to In search of Manny a lot, skateboarding in the garage, branching out from the usual punk rock or industrial. It's funny this new stuff seems like a modern extension of luscious jackson. There is a very particular drum sound, like the high hat is slowed down, and really loud in the mix. But it sounds like summer to me and if this came on the radio, I wouldn't run over and turn it off.
There still is something great about the 'radio' or let's say itunes radio, something different than a random mix, even if there's tons of stuff you haven't heard. But when a song comes up you've heard a million times comes on, it's new again. There's something about it going out there, to people listening...maybe it's an 'ah ha' moment where you know what everyone is talking about.
I just noticed the b-side on the 7" is a luscious jackson cover...that's interesting.
