Girl Talk Decides To "Feed The Animals" Today
If you're not familiar with Girl Talk, let's get you up to speed. Girl Talk is the moniker of Greg Gillis and he likes to "mashup" by sampling artist's songs together to make dance magic.
Today, Girl Talk released his fourth album, Feed the Animals, today via the Web site for his label, Illegal Art. It's available in a pay-what-you want format. At the $5-or-more level, buyers can choose to download the album in MP3 or FLAC format. At the $10-or-more level, consumers will get the above plus a physical CD when it becomes available this September. You also can choose to pay nothing for the music and they even have a follow-up screen asking you to give a reason as to why you're so cheap.
A Wikipedia page was created detailing the hundreds of samples utilized. Some of them include: the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Under the Bridge," Michael Jackson's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", Radiohead's "15 Step", Nirvana's "Lithium," Metallica's "One" and Temple Of The Dog's "Hunger Strike".
Girl Talk will be at Lollapalooza by the way. He is playing on Sunday night from 6:30 to 7:30. You can check out the rest of the set times for all the other Lollapalooza artists here.
