Lushlife is the third studio album by Bowery Electric. It was released on Beggars Banquet Records on February 22, 2000.

By now, you pretty much know what to expect from Bowery Electric - great head music filled with dashes of Mo' Wax-informed beats, breathy vocals, and atmospheric flourishes. Those three characteristics are a dime a dozen by now, but somehow BE manages to pull it off without sounding like the umpteenth Portishead knock-off.

Bowery Electric's Lushlife is a piece of work that's sumptuous in its minimalism. As with their previous album, Beat, the collective elements cut a forlorn musical figure yet still produce melodies that are surprisingly bright in their lullaby tone. The first track, "Floating World," opens with rainfall and is slowly overtaken by a lithe hip-hop beat that continues unbroken, melting perfectly into the next song
