Spoke with Rhett Miller earlier this week for a story about the Old 97's new disc, Blame It On Gravity, which you'll see in next week's paper.
In the meantime, head on over to the band's Myspace page, where someone went ahead and added on two more tracks for you all to listen to. The additions are actually the two most Murry Hammond-influenced on the disc: On "My Two Feet," Rhett borrows the chorus from an unreleased Murry write; and "Color of a Lonely Heart is Blue" isn't just sung by Murry--it just might be the best song on the disc. Check it out. --Pete Freedman
