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!

Finally!  Summer SOUL-stice has finally arrived!!!  What better way to celebrate the longest day of the year than to listen to husband and wife duo, Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore aka Tennis.  The two left their hometown of Denver, Colorado, bought a sailboat and explored the Atlantic Coast for eight months…their adventures on the high seas were the inspiration for their single, “Marathon” which will be coming out on Underwater Peoples, and they also have a very limited edition 7″ single available on Firetalk Records available in July.  Ahhh…the song just feels like Summer…

Tennis – Marathon
