OMG OMG OMG.
Oh, good news! Liz Phair, who was recently (and silently) dropped from Capitol Records after they completely bungled her career and last two albums (Yes.), has signed to a new label, which is reissuing Exile In Guyville in time for its 15th anniversary (it is currently out of print). And it comes with bonus tracks: a few of her demo recordings, which I already have. But still, it's good news! And a new album in the fall, which will hopefully redeem her last two efforts!
This is all very funny because I have been listening to this album religiously over the past week, as it is still hitting very hard. And I was planning on writing an article (maybe two!) for This Recording about it.
NOW, Pitchfork just needs to add Liz to the lineup for ATO's Don't Look Back and my life will forever be complete.
Also, I was JUST about to post this thought:
That album cover made so many people angry because Liz Phair was 36 when she posed for it.
But this, apparently, is JUST FINE:
