Good God.

My lust for this collection is physical.

"Thousands and thousands and thousands of 45s"?

Pop, rock, soul, country?

Good God.

Hype de la Liz

From a press release:
Liz Phair will preview songs from her forthcoming album, Somebody's Miracle, in a special acoustic tour this summer. Appearing at intimate venues in eight U.S. cities, Phair will also perform material from Exile In Guyville, Whip-Smart, whitechocolatespaceegg and her 2003 self-titled album.

Phair will play Lollapalooza in Chicago on July 23rd before kicking off the acoustic tour in Boston on July 26th. Highlights include two nights at Joe's Pub in New York (August 1st and 2nd) and three nights at Los Angeles' legendary Troubadour (August 10th, 11th and 12th).

Somebody's Miracle, produced by John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Jason Mraz) and John Shanks (Sheryl Crow, Chris Isaak, Melissa Etheridge), will be released by Capitol Records on October 4th. Phair recorded the album at The Village Studios in West Los Angeles.

"I wouldn't say it sounds like old Liz Phair, but it's definitely more band-driven than pop," Phair recently told Spin. "The last record had a lot more shebang in the production; this has a lot more emphasis on the songs."
