LUSCIOUS JACKSON:

MAGIC HOUR OUT TODAY

NPR MORNING EDITION INTERVIEW LIVE here

APPEARING ON THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN NOVEMBER 18

SHOWS ON SALE NOW:
DECEMBER 7 AT WEBSTER HALL IN NEW YORK CITY

NOVEMBER 23 AT UNION TRANSFER IN PHILADELPHIA

“… like a night out hitting the clubs in New York City: a rock riff here, reggae grooves there, some sugary pop, and plenty of low end. All in all, a good time, and plenty eclectic… the hook-heavy Magic Hour reminds us, at the core they are a dance-pop band not afraid to get sophisticated.” – ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Luscious Jackson were to New York freestyle dance pop what their cohorts the Beastie Boys were to hip-hop… Welcome back, ladies.” – ROLLING STONE

“Jill Cunniff, Gabby Glaser and Kate Schellenbach were the coolest girls in the East Village when they emerged as the eclectic alt-rock group Luscious Jackson… They’re still the coolest.” – PAPER Magazine

Luscious Jackson’s long awaited Magic Hour is finally here, released today, November 5, on the band’s own City Song label. The record can be purchased at iTunes or here.

Early response to Magic Hour has been uniformly excellent, with ROLLING STONE, BILLBOARD, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, and more singing the new record’s praises, and NPR heralding its release with a FIRST LISTEN preview and a MORNING EDITION profile – the latter can be heard here.

Luscious Jackson will make its first network TV appearance in nearly a decade on November 18, when the band returns to The Late Show with David Letterman.

The first live show in the wake of Magic Hour’s release will take place a week later, November 23 at Philadelphia’s Union Transfer, followed by a December 7 homecoming spectacular at Webster Hall in New York City. Tickets are on sale now at:

Philadelphia
New York City
