Girl Talk machen einen Radiohead: neues, mashup-like Album für lau


(Youtube Direktwhoa!)

Girl Talk hatte ich bis jetzt gar nicht auf'm Schirm und wenn ich mir das neue Album so anhöre, dann muss ich sagen: da hab' ich wohl was verpasst. Geniale Sample-Schnippsel zu Collagen verarbeitet, die mir persönlich eine Spur zu sehr HipHop sind, dafür aber gleich im ersten Song die Blues Brothers und eins meiner Alltime-Hairmetal-Lieblingslieder ever verbraten, „We're not gonna take it“ von Twisted Sister nämlich. Nur um „Nothing Compares 2 u“ hinterherzuschieben. Ein fantastisches Album für lau, und wenn man was bezahlt, gibt es höhere Datenraten oder eben die CD obendrauf.

So for this one, I feel like I'm in a fairly lucky situation to have people who want to hear it already before even hearing it. That much is a rare thing in my career so far. I think what we went for seems like an obvious game plan now, just because as soon as it hits the internet, anyone who reads the internet can get it for free if they want to. So why not tap in and let them actually take a step back and think about it, and maybe offer some money? It seemed to make sense, especially because kids who listen to my music are probably fairly attached to the internet and can get it for free if they actually want to.
