Mascott is an U.S. indie-pop band based in New York City formed in 1998.

The indie pop group Mascott is led by singer/guitarist Kendall Jane Meade, formerly of Juicy.[1] After that band disbanded in the wake of their 1996 album Olive Juicy, Meade relocated from New York City to her native Detroit to plot her next move; weeks later she was invited to play keyboards on Helium's UK tour, followed by a series of shows backing Rebecca Gates' Spinanes.[2] She formed Mascott soon after, releasing their debut EP Electric Poems on Le Grand Magistery in late 1998.[3] Three years later, she released the Jim O'Rourke produced Follow the Sound. Dreamer's Book was released on her own label, Red Panda, in early 2004.[4]

Mascott released a 3rd full-length studio album entitled Art Project on November 11, 2008 on Red Panda Records. [5]
