Keep on Shockin' It: Luscious Jackson Come Back Strong With "Show Us What You Got"

NYC funk-pop luminaries Luscious Jackson have been pretty damn quiet since 1999's Electric Honey. But they return with a vengeance now with "Show Us What You Got," a concise, highly torqued, instantly clap-along-able tune to which one can squeeze the last precious drops of summer. It's a perfect combo of punchy, swerving rock and nimble electro. I've played it 11 times already and haven't even begun to tire of it. It's not quite as wonderful as LJ's debut 1992 EP, In Search of Manny, but not much is.
Welcome back, Gabby Glaser, Jill Cunniff, and Kate Schellenbach.
