Girl Talk's back with a FREE album

Fitting that as I embark on ihrtmusique v2.0, there's a new Girl Talk album out, because Girl Talk was the subject of my very first post here.

If you don't know this guy, Girl Talk is a fantastic example of how computers and sampling can enable the creation of new tracks. So in theory anyone can create music like that, and that's part of the beauty of it. But then again anyone can pick up a guitar and learn some chords, but it doesn't make you John Lennon. Did I just compare Girl Talk to Lennon? Hmmmm...that might be a step too far, but dude sure does know how to make a great mixtape.

The new album's called All Day and is FREEEEEEEEE to download from his label's website, Illegal Art. Click that link to get it.

It's as good as his previous offering, Feed The Animals, and in case you drive yourself mad trying to spot all of the samples (of which there are dozens, if not a hundred or two), then some other music-obsessed dude has created a website which not only lists them all, but he's even done it in such a way that shows you what you're listening to - check out the screengrab below which shows how the tracks listed under the music bar come and go as the samples do. Nice.
