In 1994, Liz Phair was coming off of one of the most critically-lauded debuts of the decade. With expectations set incredibly high, she put out the follow up, Whip-Smart, just 15 months later and while she could never escape the comparisons to Exile in Guyville, decades later, that second album still remains a gem. UMe, alongside Capitol is finally re-releasing a trio of Phair records from her time with Capitol.

The overall constellation of Saisons is sufficiently broad that beyond a bit of wheat and hay, there is little indication precisely what one is going to get when they taste an offering from the style. The beer pours with a yellow to light brown color and a whitish head that speckles its way down a glass. One will have to pour the Rye Saison fairly slowly, as there is a tendency…

The latest music video from PUJOL is for the song “Circles“.  The video, directed by Stewart Copeland, is composed of 16,000 still pictures that were assembled into clips inside Photoshop.  Daniel Pujol is singing and moving in half-time to a slowed down track, while the lizards move in real time.  This gives the video a very unique and cool feel. Stewart Copeland and Daniel Pujol both talked to HitFix about…

Just prior to starting the project I had a bout of pneumonia…
