    1990s alt pop band Luscious Jackson have resumed making music, but it's not about nostalgia.

    Jill Cunniff told CNN that, "I hope there's nostalgia, that's great, but it has nothing to do with what we're doing. It's just because the time is exactly right to do it. Five years ago, there wasn't this type of social network connection, connectivity. I think now people really miss that spirit of another time. People were really sad to hear we broke up and I guess now those people realizing that we're reuniting and they're writing about how happy they are. It's great."

    She also talked collabs, saying, "We could collaborate with anybody," she said. "I saw Mike [D] recently, so maybe down the road..."

    The Beastie Boys one-time label Grand Royal released Luscious Jackson albums.

    Are you nostalgic about this reunion?
