25th Anniversary Reissue Of Influential Landmark Album
Certified Gold In 1998
Remastered By Emily Lazar At The Lodge
"Maybe the greatest work of traditional American indie rock that
anyone has ever made. It's also probably the best road-trip album
of its generation and the signal of a rare talent's arrival. It deserves
to be celebrated. Let's do that." - Stereogum
"A landmark of foul-mouthed, compromised intimacy, a tortured
confessional, a workout in female braggadocio, and a wellspring of
penetrating self-analysis and audacity." - The New Yorker
"Exile is just one perfect song after another" - Rolling Stone
"The genius of Liz Phair's debut is its wonderful simplicity. Phair
was as straightforward as you could get-- her music was incredibly
catchy, rootsy pop, fueled by timeless, original melodies and lyrics
whose honesty was refreshing and, occasionally, shocking." - Pitchfork, #5 in the list of top 100 albums of the '90s
2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Liz Phair's

its greatness. In addition to the straight reissue,
Matador is also releasing Girly-Sound To Guyville, an
extensive vinyl box set to celebrate the anniversary.
Originally released in 1993, Exile In Guyville is
a seminal album and a feminist landmark. Its
legendary status has only grown over the years.
It's continually included in countless lists Rolling
Stone's 500 Greatest albums of all time + 100 best
albums of the 90s, Pitchfork's Top 100 albums of the
90s, etc. Numerous essays and think pieces have
been written about it and the number of accolades
piled on is endless.
Since the release of Exile in Guyville, Liz Phair has
continued to defy expectation and break barriers.
She has released five albums and is currently
working on a new one. She has also composed
music for television shows and received awards for
that work. In November, it was announced that she
would be fulfilling a longtime dream to be an author,
having received a two-book deal with Random
House. Her first book will be called Horror Stories
which focuses on "heartbreak, motherhood, and
everything in between".
