After leaving the roster of Capitol Records in 2008, Liz Phair began working on a number of offbeat, highly unconventional songs, many of which dealt with her frustration with the ailing record industry. Rather than partner with a new label, she took matters into her own hands by uploading the songs to her website, where they were packaged together and released under the album title Funstyle. Full of unexpected moments, the album finds Liz Phair in a loose, quirky mood while continuing to thumb her nose at naysayers.
Billboard (p.72) - "[There are] a few firsts on FUNSTYLE, ranging from Phair's rap verse on the track 'Beat Is Up' to the Beck-esque stoner rock on 'And He Slayed Her' and the R&B-flavored vibe of 'My My.'"
