Done no favors by its mid-winter release, Jill Cunniff’s City Beach is an album perfectly suited to lazy summer afternoons, combining laidback pop melodies with half-tempo hip-hop rhythms and a healthy dose of modern rock’s nervous energy. Stylistically, that sound isn’t a huge departure for Cunniff, a founding member of Luscious Jackson, but City Beach boasts a far more diverse sonic palette than any of her band’s albums, and Cunniff has never sounded more joyful as a singer or writer as she does here
20. The music sounds less and less related to Cunniff’s roots, more and more similar to a slew of interchangeable soft-pop songs, of the type you’re likely to hear in a doctor’s office or a grocery store.
Jill Cunniff, ex-singer of the alternative rock, all-girl group Luscious Jackson, explained her debut as a 'mood record made to bring the beach to caged up city dwellers. I hope it will also bring the city to homesick urbanites everywhere. The twelve-track album is a breezy, earnest yet celebratory piece-aglow with motherly wisdom and metrical nods to the unassailable grit and color of urban life. Luscious Jackson fans who bemoaned that group's demise in 2000 will be pleased to hear of the debut solo release by founding member Jill Cunniff.
City Beach is the title of the solo album released by Luscious Jackson member Jill Cunniff. The following is the Official Press Release taken from JillCunniff.
