LIZ PHAIR, ''NEVER SAID (LIVE)''
Those bummed by the onetime indie darling's halfhearted excursions into generic pop-rock can take solace in a new acoustic take this Exile in Guyville classic. Buy the track on iTunes
TRESPASSERS WILLIAM, ''SAFE SOUND''
With her delicate voice trembling across a tranquil guitar buzz, singer Anna-Lynne Williams emits a sad-eyed wistfulness on this elegant frozen ballad. Download it for free at Nettwerk Records
ROY, ''JESUS DRIVES A TRANS AM''
''He said if I write this down, he won't drop me off in hell,'' testifies the hitchhiking narrator of this amusingly blasphemous folk tale from the alt-country four-piece. Download it for free at Lujo Records
DELTA 5, ''MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS''
First released in 1979, this song was the debut single from long overlooked post-punk quintet Delta 5. Resurrected on a superb new comp, the track is a perfect chunk of angular funk. Download it for free here
