Girl Talk


Yesterday, Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis) surprised-released his third album, All Day. Like his previous albums, it's available for free (or whatever you feel like paying) on Illegal Art.

Girl Talk's albums are created from a wealth of unauthorized samples. Although it might not make music publishers happy, the albums are always available for free and fall under fair use.

I was a huge fan of his previous album, Feed the Animals. Some people felt it was too schizophrenic, but the constantly shifting pace ensured some of the better juxtapositions left you wanting more, and anything that felt less inspired never lingered long enough to be offensive. It was a one-stop, frenetic party.

From what I've heard, All Day seems to be a worthy successor.
