The Stoop

Multi-instrumentalist Adam Pallin provides the lighter-than-air pop-soul canvases for the Brooklyn duo Little Jackie’s debut, while longtime hipster fave Imani Coppola (who resurfaced, after a low-profile decade, with last year’s acclaimed The Black & White Album) splashes her smirky observational lyrics all over them. Rap-singing about bad breakups, text-messaging mishaps, and above all, her own ineffable coolness, Coppola paints a thoroughly enticing portrait of urban singledom on The Stoop. Sure, her attitude is occasionally a touch too self-satisfied, but that’s a small price to pay for such an abundance of sparkling snark. B+
