Fun with Promosquad

1. OTD loves Promosquad. Even though we make a living delivering opinions about music, we like to think of Promosquad as kind of like rock-critic jury duty. Now playing: something by the Click Five, Audioslave's "Doesn't Remind Me," an R&B cover of "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" that someone's obviously waiting til Live 8 to drop, with a verse by some dude ripping off Tupac's line ("they got money for war but can't feed the poor"). Not playing: the new Liz Phair jawns . . . What, you mean you haven't heard the new Liz Phair jawns? Shit, why didn't you say so?

[Disclaimer: P-squad-style two-minute clips, not the whole enchilada]
Liz Phair, Everything To Me (zipped mp3 clip)
Liz Phair, Giving It All To You (zipped mp3 clip)
Liz Phair, Lost Tonight (zipped mp3 clip)
Liz Phair, Somebody's Miracle (zipped mp3 clip)
Liz Phair, Part of Me (zipped mp3 clip)

2. Liz's message-board peeps are almost as salty about these tracks as Flaming Lips fans are about "Mr. Ambulance Driver." Maybe they should all get together and go see that Flaming Lips movie, which has Liz in it. Then they could go download the soundtrack.

3. Old news, new news:

New Album, Somebody's Miracle,
Scheduled for October 4th Release On Capitol Records

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."
