Luscious Jackson - "Show Us What You Got"
Luscious Jackson, the band that taught indie kids to dance, is back with the first song off their first album since 1999, Magic Hour. Every indie dance act out today owes a debt to Luscious Jackson, although they probably don't know it. I was a little worried they'd try to keep up with the kids and this whole twerking phenomenon, but "Show Us What You Got" is a mid-tempo groove that fits right in with their classic 90s work. It's a perfectly fun summer tune, which is a bit of a shame they held it back until now. Magic Hour was crowdsourced, making 100% of goal in 48 hours. There are still some packages left over at PledgeMusic, so check it out. For more details, head on over to Luscious Jackson's official website, and you'll find "Show Us What You Got" below. Magic Hour is due out November 5th.
