Little Jackie, 'The Stoop' (S-Curve)

5
The Stoop
Critical Mass
Label: S-Curve

by Chuck Eddy

A decade since buffalo-stanced single "Legend of a Cowgirl" earned her momentary fame, Imani Coppola resurfaces (with help from DJ/programmer Adam Pallin and producer Michael Mangini) in a group named after an old Lisa Lisa track. She's still focused on summer in the city and is as wordy as ever -- name-dropping Kerouac, contemplating going bi, picking fights with tabloid pop stars, making muddled points about body image and Afrocentrism. But only in the fire-hydrant-ready title cut, where an around-the-way girl reminisces about bodegas in Bed-Stuy, does Coppola seem like more than a confessional folkie playing funky dress-up.
