"Don't Lie to Me," pollsters.

The American Princes have donated a long time staple of their live shows, a cover of Big Star’s “Don’t Lie to Me,” to Barack Rock, a website aimed at raising awareness and funds for Obama. Download it here. It's good. Spot on.

In other Arkansas-connected free music news vaguely tied to the election, John Pugh's new band, Free Blood, has a banging new track for download on Rcrdlb. Pugh shout's out Obama in a creepy/cool OPEN SESAME-style whisper. Politics on the dance floor!
