girl talk's "feed the animals" is at the top of the mashup game

Mashup's been around for a while. Every Saturday night you can turn on your local Top 40 station and hear the beat of one song juxtaposed with the vocals of another. For the most part, that shit is boring and predictable. Girl Talk, on the other hand, takes the act of mashing artists and turns it into an art form.

Gregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, just finished his new album, Feed the Animals. It has some new, some old, and some straight up unthinkable tracks laced into the album. Yeah, there's the obligatory Flo Rida and Kanye West, but Metallica, Radiohead, and Sinead O'Connor make the cut as well, and it's as fitting as anything else you've heard in the mashup game. So much makes it into the album, even if only for a few seconds. Oh, and of course Phil Collins' famous "In The Air Tonight" drum break makes it in there.

Feed the Animals is one of those albums that can make a party out of nothing. You can put it on repeat and not worry about tending to your iPod for the rest of the night. It's just got that level of production and Gillis has created a seamless blend of music spanning all kinds of genres, which really attests to his musical prowess. Feed the Animals is available the old Radiohead way, in which you can name your own price. Check it out.
