Free Music: Girl Talk Feeds The Animals

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 19, 2008 6:50PM

Girl Talk's Feed The AnimalsHow appropriate, the day that Chicago's supreme mash-up duo has a record release party is the same day Gregg Gillis decided to drop the new Girl Talk album, Feed The Animals. For free. (Or pay what you can.) It's largely the same set of tunes he used to whip the crowd into a frenzy at last year's Pitchfork Music Festival, so there are no real surprises, but it is a supremely solid piece of work. Our personal favorite "what the heck?!" sample moment occurs early on when Aphex Twin pops up in "Shut The Club Down."

Come to think of it, considering the number of sample-clearance lawsuits sure to follow this high profile release, make sure you donate at least a little something to Gillis for his troubles.
