City Beach is the title of the solo album released by Luscious Jackson member Jill Cunniff. It was released on February 20, 2007 on CD.[3] It was also released on 12" vinyl, which also include an exclusive track co-written by author, journalist, musician and cult heroine Vivian Goldman, "Like Smoke" not available on the CD or by web download. 500 copies of City Beach were made available on red and yellow vinyl.[4]

The following is the Official Press Release taken from JillCunniff.com:[5]

Jill Cunniff, ex-singer of the alternative rock, all-girl group Luscious Jackson, explained her debut solo album as a “mood record made to bring the beach to caged up city dwellers. I hope it will also bring the city to homesick urbanites everywhere.” The twelve-track album is a breezy, earnest yet celebratory piece—aglow with motherly wisdom and metrical nods to the unassailable grit and color of urban life.

Emmylou Harris appears as a guest vocalist on the album.
