Almost a year ago, Juliana Hatfield stopped by the ‘Gum Drop with the then unreleased “So Alone.” Currently working on a followup to How To Walk Away, the perennial Stereogum favorite returns with a demo of a new song with an intriguing name. We asked Hatfield about “There’s Always Another Girl (For Lindsay Lohan).” She responded at length, telling us, among other things:
I rented I Know Who Killed Me and was impressed at how watchable and interesting Lindsay Lohan was in it, which was a surprise because the film was universally panned. That got me thinking, and Tweeting, about what a sort of bum rap Lindsay has gotten these past few years and how she is actually, if you sit down and watch her with an open mind, a good actor and how all she needs is one great, serious role in a good movie — maybe a small indie movie — to make people take her seriously (like Mickey Rourke and The Wrestler). It’s so gross and nasty for people to be watching and waiting and almost cheerleading for Lindsay to relapse, or get in a car crash or whatever. Horrible.
Read the rest of Hatfield’s response while you take a listen to her song.
In this week’s Drop, we also offered the chance to win an iPod Touch and retro rock tees from Wolfgang’s Vault.
One Grand Prize winner takes home an 8GB iPod Touch plus seven rock t-shirts, all courtesy of Wolfgang’s Vault. (And if you win, you’ll wanna fill your iPod with tunes from their live music archive.) Five Runners Up each get the seven shirts. Winners choose their preferred size. Here are the tees…
