Song of the Day – Monday 11/22/10 Girl Talk November 22, 2010

Pittsburgh’s Gregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, is a musician/DJ who left the world of biomedical engineering to become a full-time mashup artist.  Because Gillis does not get permission from the original artists to create his mashups, the New York Times calls Girl Talk’s music “a lawsuit waiting to happen.”

Girl Talk’s fifth album, All Day was released last week on Illegal Art.  You can choose to either download it as separate tracks or as one seamless file and listen to it as it was “intended to be listened to as a whole.”  You can download the entire album for FREE here!

On the track, “Jump on Stage” Girl Talk samples everyone from Portishead, 50 Cent, Talking Heads, Radiohead, Iggy Pop, to Lady Gaga plus several more…

On stage, Girl Talk has been known to strip down to his skivvies and put on a crazy-ass show!  You’ll get to see first hand, what all mixing and mashing looks like when Girl Talk performs at the Fox Theater in Oakland on 3/18/2011!

Song of the Day – Tuesday 9/7/2010 Bethany Cosentino, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij September 7, 2010

It’s the day after Labor Day and you know what that means…it’s the symbolic end of Summer.  So put away your white pants and let’s listen to one last song to commemorate our favorite season…

Creating an exclusive track for Converse, Bethany Cosentino from Best Coast, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend sing an ode to waiting all year long for Summer.  So now that Summer’s over, you’re just now realizing how good you had it, how great Summer made you feel, and how much you took it for granted.  Now, of course, you want Summer back.  But don’t despair, you’ll get back together in 9 months, but until then, download “All Summer” here.

Goodie Mob/Gnarls Barkley singer, songwriter, rapper, producer extraordinaire, Cee-Lo Green has another hit on his hands.  His soulful “Fuck You” is a middle-finger shout-out to his ex-girl and her new beau, and while you may think it’s gonna be an angry dis, this song is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and make you feel better about your day…you’re gonna wanna play it over and over until you get sick of it or until it makes you go “Crazy”…

The single dropped on YouTube a little over a week ago and has gone mega-viral (but something tells me this is gonna need a radio edit if it’s ever gonna hit the airwaves).  The new album, The Lady Killer is scheduled for release on 12/7/2010.  You can download the single here

9/1/2010 UPDATE:  Cee-Lo just dropped the official vid today:

You can still see the placeholder vid here (both are equally good):

Song of the Day – Wednesday 7/28/2010 The Roots July 28, 2010

Hip hop legends, The Roots released their ninth studio album, How I Got Over on 6/22/2010.  The single, “The Fire” features John Legend on the hook and the video was directed by Rik Cordero who explains the premise for the video:

“It chronicles a post-apocalyptic death march set in 1945 during the final stages of World War II in Europe.  After a cataclysmic event renders the war futile, a paramilitary splinter group, led by a Kurtz-like figure known as The Commodore, forces the transfer of young men who will be used as labor…and food.  The last survivor of the march receives a mysterious White Box which holds the key to survival.”
