LYRIC AND WORD PAINTINGS
BY JILL CUNNIFF OF LUSCIOUS JACKSON
OPENING NIGHT TO FEATURE SPECIAL ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE 
SEPTEMBER 20th FROM 7-10 PM
NEW YORK NY 10002
Presented By PMM ART PROJECTS

Luscious Jackson founding member Jill Cunniff will showcase a new dimension of her many talents with her first exhibition of original artwork, Lyric and Word Paintings. The exhibition will run from Thursday, September 20th through Sunday, September 23rd at 198 Allen Street in New York City.

The opening night event will take place 7-10 pm on September 20th and will include a one night only acoustic set by Jill, performing songs spanning the Luscious Jackson catalogue, as well as from her 2007 solo album, City Beach.

Commenting on the inspiration and process behind her paintings, Jill explained: “I’ve been painting my whole life. As a teenager, I used to paint and write songs kind of like a hand off, switching between the two over the course of an afternoon. I listen to music when I am doing artwork; it’s a big part of the process. I’m influenced by New York City’s streets and the posters and writings that pile up on top of each other, creating layers of color and text. I came of age in 1980s downtown NYC when graffiti and hip-hop met punk. Later, I was introduced to the work of Bay Area Figurative artists while studying painting at U.C. Berkeley, and their glowing landscapes also had a deep influence. So my paintings have elements that are both hectic and serene.”

Jill Cunniff co-founded Luscious Jackson in 1991. The band’s unique and streetwise blend of punk, funk, and the various musical and cultural styles of its native NYC emerged via Beastie Boys’ Grand Royal label with the 1992 Village Voice Pazz & Jop Best EP winner In Search Of Manny. Debut album Natural Ingredients was released in 1994, featuring the single “Here.” Luscious Jackson’s sophomore album Fever In Fever Out dropped in 1996, including the hit “Naked Eye” and earning the band its first gold record. Album number three, 1999’s Electric Honey (featuring “Ladyfingers”), preceded Luscious Jackson’s 2000 break-up. During that lengthy hiatus, Jill was a songwriter for other artists, produced the house music group Cooler Kids, and released her 2007 solo album, City Beach. In 2013, Jill resumed her role as vocalist, bass player and principle songwriter of Luscious Jackson for the band’s long awaited fourth album, Magic Hour.

NEW STUDIO ALBUM  ‘The Now Now’ – OUT NOW

“’Humility’… sounds like an A.I.-generated summer bop: basslines bounce, synths rush, and George Benson riffs frolic like dragonflies.” – PITCHFORK

Gorillaz celebrate the unforgettable summer of 2018 with the release of two new remixes – Humility (DJ Koze Remix) and Humility (Superorganism Remix), available to stream and download on all DSPs now.

The collaboration has resulted in two new remixes of ‘Humility to soundtrack the heatwave. Zeitgeist-surfing music collective Superorganism infuse the song with their indie-pop magic alongside a new visual remix of the Jamie Hewlett-directed video featuring Superorganism frontwoman Orono. And joining the party is underground superstar DJ Koze, with his own unique spin on the track.

The original – featuring Jamie Principle and George Benson,  “…his beautiful liquid guitar elevating excellent single Humility.” (The Guardian) – was released last month as the first single from Gorillaz’ brand new studio album The Now Now,

The Now Now is the new 11-track studio album from the World’s Most Successful Virtual Act*. Produced by Gorillaz, with James Ford and Remi Kabaka, and recorded entirely at Studio 13, London in February this year.

Gorillaz, currently on the road across Europe with The Now Now Tour, will return home for a headline appearance at Boomtown Festival, Hampshire – their only UK show this year – on 11th August.  And the band’s own acclaimed Demon Dayz Festival – the “joyful apocalypse… and carnivalesque festival of great performances” (The Guardian)” curated by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett – will make its exclusive appearance for this year at the Pico Rivera Arena in Los Angeles on 20th October, with additional dates for North America also confirmed. (See complete tour itinerary below).

Notes to Editors:

About Superorganism:

Barely eighteen months into their bright burning existence, Superorganism have successfully negotiated a steep trajectory from brand new internet buzz band to much-loved, real world breakout stars, with a global fan base and acclaimed debut album to their name. The London-based, eight person collective of international musicians and pop culture junkies from Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand and the UK released their self-titled debut album in March via Domino; a riot of idiosyncratic, technicolor pop that is an on-the-money encapsulation of the vital sights and sounds of music in 2018.

www.wearesuperorganism.com

About DJ Koze:

DJ Koze exists a little outside of time of time. Not only because his records can take you to places where everything seems to stop, the present moment expanding out to the horizon, but because he manages to function on a timeline completely detached from the usual dreary cycles of hype, influence, club hits, press credibility and career progression that govern so many of the structures of the music world. None of which is to say, though, that he’s a wilful “outsider” artist: though Koze’s music has been consistently strange and psychedelic, he has absolutely no truck with courting obscurity or alienating people for the sake of it, and he is hugely popular with very good reason.

Even in a world flooded by cheap copies and functional clubs, his remixing skills are some of the most in-demand in the world, the Pampa label is one of the most important in electronic music, and his DJ sets are revered worldwide to this day… and as knock knock shows without question, he is still a world-bestriding music artist in his own right. Outside of time, outside of obvious influence, outside of trend and hype – but right inside a circle of great “artists with gifted talents… somewhere on the edge of pop music” – DJ Koze just keeps on keeping on.

U2 & Broken Fingaz Crew Reunite

Animated Video for “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Beck Remix)” Out Now

‘The door is open to go through
If I could I would come too
But the path is made by you
As you‘re walking, start singing and stop talking…’

Earlier this year Beck joined forces with U2 to remix “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way” from the international #1 album, Songs of Experience (Interscope). The GRAMMY Album of the Year winning musician dug deep to expose the organic foundation underpinning the soaring harmonies of the anthem spurring nightly sing-alongs on the current eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour.

Now, Broken Fingaz Crew, the fearless Israeli graffiti collective who previously collaborated with U2 on the “American Soul” and “Get Out Of Your Own Way” videos, have created a visual re-imagination of similar impact. The infectious sonic optimism of the U2 + Beck remix is translated once again into a dizzying dreamscape, where turbulent seas and dancing skeletons ultimately give way to a message of hope.

Known only by the pseudonyms that preserve their anonymity with local authorities – Unga, Tant, Kip and Desco — the enigmatic Broken Fingaz Crew’s groundbreaking street art in their native Haifa inspired U2 to give them full creative control to visually interpret these songs.  The results have continually reaffirmed Broken Fingaz Crew’s standing as artistic and social pioneers emerging from an underground of their own creation.

Broken Fingaz Crew’s animated realization of “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Beck Remix)”  can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/d7S0-SSFQ4U

PAUL McCARTNEY 

EGYPT STATION

NEW STUDIO ALBUM OUT SEPTEMBER 7, 2018 on CAPITOL RECORDS

PRE-ORDERS LIVE NOW, INCLUDING DOUBLE A-SIDE SINGLE “I DON’T KNOW”/“COME ON TO ME”

Paul McCartney invites you on a musical journey to Egypt Station, estimated time of arrival September 7, 2018 by way of Capitol Records.

Sharing a title with one of Paul’s own paintings, Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013’s international chart-topping NEW. Preceded by two of its tracks just released as double A-sides–plaintive ballad  “I Don’t Know” and raucous stomper  “Come On To Me”—Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).

Of the forthcoming album’s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’ It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make.., Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.”

True to the inspiration behind its title, Egypt Station’s 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe. Between the opening and closing instrumentals “Station I” and “Station II,” each song finds Paul capturing a place or moment before transporting the listener seamlessly to the next destination. Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness (“Happy With You”), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era (“People Want Peace”), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Paul’s previous combos (“Despite Repeated Warnings”). The result is a kaleidoscopic journey through myriad musical locales and eras, yet firmly rooted in the here and now–with Paul’s singular unmistakeable melodic sensibility serving as guide.

Confirmation of Egypt Station’s release puts an end to speculation about a new Paul McCartney album that began with the whiting out of his Instagram account as Paul turned up at various landmarks in Liverpool. The capper was a June 9 surprise gig at Liverpool’s tiny Philharmonic Pub, during which “Come On To Me” was debuted alongside a set of classics spanning Paul’s career. Further details to come…

Listen to “I Don’t Know” and  “Come On To Me.”

PRE-ORDER Egypt Station HERE, available in the following formats:

– Limited Edition heavyweight Concertina vinyl package
– Limited Edition Concertina CD package
– Digital album
– Super Deluxe Limited Edition hand numbered box set package featuring bonus tracks coming soon.

PAUL McCARTNEY TO RELEASE ALL-NEW DOUBLE A-SIDE SINGLE

“I DON’T KNOW”/“COME ON TO ME”

AVAILABLE WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20th on CAPITOL RECORDS

Following a whirlwind week that saw his Instagram presence rebooted as he played one of the most intimate gigs of his storied career, Paul McCartney is done keeping the world in suspense: “I Don’t Know” and “Come On To Me,” will be released tomorrow as a double A-Side single.

The first tastes of Paul’s brand new studio album due out later this year on Capitol Records, the two A-sides are polar opposites: “I Don’t Know” being a plaintive, soul-soothing ballad as only Paul can deliver, and “Come On To Me” a raucous stomper that fans that first spark of chemistry into a rocking blaze.

Worldwide speculation about a new Paul McCartney album instantly reached fever pitch as his Instagram account whited out last week—only to ratchet higher as Paul was spotted taking selfies at landmarks in Liverpool the same day. The evening’s climactic event was a surprise gig at the tiny Liverpool Philharmonic Pub, during which “Come On To Me” made its live debut alongside a set of classics spanning Paul’s career.

Paul’s new album is slated for Fall 2018 release on Capitol Records. Further details will be announced shortly.
