Liz Phair takes a trip to “Bollywood”

Oh, Liz Phair. Has it really come to this?

Seventeen years after the release of her debut Exile in Guyville– an album Blender considered the 35th best indie rock album of all time– Phair is back with a new album called Funstyle.

Bollywood, the album’s lead single, is downright bizarre. Phair raps about the injustice of the music industry over a tabla and sitar-driven track. Sample lyric: “Let me tell you how it’s done here in Hollywood/Maybe you were thinking you was in the Bollywood.” Ugh. Hopefully a video of Phair dancing around in a lengha isn’t inevitable.

You can listen to the song below. (Warning: it’s a bit painful.):
