New Music: Ding Dong the Motherfucking Witch Is Dead

Liz Phair's got a new song, and it's a little difficult to tell how good it is. You see, the only version of the song we have so far is a live performance from her "Exile" anniversary tour, and live? She's a little tone-deaf sometimes. It's a bitter, bitter song about the douchebag that ran the record label that she just escaped from, and it sounds like it could be really, really, good in a setting where she's a little more on-key. Seriously, there are some very upsetting high notes in this song that need to be worked on, but in general, it's her getting back to what she does best: genuine emotions (she really hates this fucker)and no radio-pop bullshit.

By the way, I like this song more and more every time I hear it. "Ding Dong, his crooked soul, hang yourself on ROCK AND ROLL!"
