Having concluded (perhaps) that being hated is preferable to being ignored, Liz Phair took to her website last year to follow up 2005s ultra-bland Somebodys Miracle with Funstyle, a purposely low-rent bit music-biz satire that has attracted more critical eye-rolls than her notorious collab with Avril Lavignes peeps. Dont believe the anti-hype: With its giddy-goofy rap tracks and occasional radio-pop choruses, Funstyle is indeed a good deal of fun, and no less confrontational than the sacrosanct Exile in Guyville. Figure shell play at least one song from the thing tonight.
