Album Watch: Little Jackie Are 'Made4TV'

Thursday, September 15, 2011


Raise your hand if you didn't know Little Jackie released an album this year.

*raises hand*

I better see a lot of phalanges up---I can't be the only honest one. Well, yes they did, the duo of the fabulous Imani Coppola and producer co-hort, Adam Pallin, released Made4TV back in August as a follow-up to their highly enjoyable debut album, The Stoop from '08. Little Jackie know not to mess with a good thing as from streaming the album (see below), they haven't lost that rockets red glare, bombs bursting in air pop n' vintage soul sound that made The Stoop and noted single, "The World Should Revolve Around Me" such fun romps. From first stream, I'm pleased that Imani hasn't lost her sarcasm and wit, as you can hear in tracks like  "Cock Block", a song about---ah well, you can just guess, and the cougar chasing jingle, "21st Birthday". Seriously, the lady writes some hilarious stuff. Just pick up some of her many independently produced solo albums (I totally suggest 2007's The Black & White Album to start off) and find yourself bobbing your head and laughing---she's like a curly haired musically inclined Daria, just with a cheerier attitude.

So if you like what's streamin' or your interest is just piqued, you can get the goods for 12 buckaroos over at their Bandcamp page. No disappointments to be found.

  2. Loved 'The Stoop' too, Kit. Every time I play it it reminds me of a trip I took to San Francisco that year. Always brings a smile to my face.
