View Full Version : Girl Talk - Feed The Animals: A Mashup for the Ages
07-20-2008, 10:36 PM
Girl Talk is the stage name of a Dj and mashup producer. A mashup this creative and varied hasn't been seen since A Night at the Hip Hopera. Blending classic rock, alternative rock, modern rap, old school hip hop, and electronic, he creates a masterpiece that everyone from the gang bangers to the indie kids can appreciate.
He's using a pay model similar to radio head.
You can pay, if you want. You should, but you don't have to. it will get pirated anyway.
0-5 dollars is MP3 format, 5 or more is FLAC and 10 is physical album.
So what are you waiting for.
Go forth and

That is some good stuff. I am almost completely ignorant of music and I recognised something in each track. Couldn't pick a favourite one though, they all flow together so seamlessley.

I like Girl Talk's energy, but I don't think his mashups are that creative -- they keep coming back to niggas talking about drugs and hos, which apart from being fucking obnoxious is also the easiest shit in the world to beat-match. Every now and then there'll be a few seconds of a good song, but then it's back to YO YO FUCKIN' HOS, ZIPPY ZOO ZAGGY WIPPLE WOO; I can't fucking stand it. Apart from being just awful music, it's like he's trying to be a rapper by association, or something.
After Bad Apollo - I'm Burning Fart IV - Volume Two: No butts for lmao, every other mashup sounds like bland shit.
You should listen to Liam Howlett's DJ stuff. The Dirtchamber Sessions is eclectic and wonderful.

I tend to like mashups with hip hop in them. Which is why I loved "A Night at the Hip Hopera" because it had all this old school shit alogn with queen which is loved. and big lebowski soundbytes. im pretty obsessive about rock lobster mashups, too. (i made one and its floating around here and there on the intertubenet

I heard a mashup album once which was, if I'm remembering right, an entire 50 Cent album mixed with Queen. It was the shoddiest so-called mashup I've ever heard. Apart from 50 Cent being just the worst, there was no actual mashing-up going on. It was pretty much just Queen samples, looped and beatmatched to 50 Cent's vocals. Any idiot could do that.
I guess I'm never really impressed by mashups involving rap/hip-hop because there's no 'melody matching' involved. I don't see what the challenge is. Oh, this song has a beat? Holy shit, and you can fit these rap lyrics to it? Golly fucking gumdrops!
There are exceptions, of course, but generally that's how I feel.
Dan, I've heard the Dirtchamber Sessions, and I like some bits of it, but overall it doesn't do it for me. It's not unlike something I might like, though.
I really liked that Green Day mashup album, a few years back -- American Edit. Really rocking and solid. I can't listen to normal rock songs anymore; they need to be mashed-up with something! I demand layers of sonic complexity!
That's why I like Doddodo so much: Her stuff is like an insane mashup, except better and not a mashup. There are sampled sounds but it's all original music.

That was by dangermouse. I don't get dangermouse. He's not a mashup artist, it's like you said. He just puts shit together. hes a nice producer though. hes one half of gnarls barkley and has done work on some stuff with damon alburn.
american edit was great though. it was by party ben, one of my favorite guys for that shit. I like his Dare mashups too, those were great. I've never seen any dirtchamber sessions or doddodo much, though. Everything I see is usually off of google or mashuptown

oh my, Bad Apollo is the greatest ever. I have Feed The Animals and always though it used a bit too much terrible gangsta rap, but other than that was pretty amazing. Bad Apollo is now my favourite mashup album ever though.

Girl Talk is way overrated. His shit is way too ADD, but still manages to be boring. I actually think that's more impressive than the actual music.
DJ Z-Trip and DJ-P's Uneasy Listening Volume 1 is probably my favourite. It was released back around 2001, and only had about a thousand pressings before the laywers swooped down to put the kibosh on the whole thing. The music itself is generally bits and pieces of two or three songs, layered appropriately. It uses vocal tracks from huge pop songs, and layers them over great break-beats and scratching.
The Avalanches are the kings though. They've only released one "real" LP, and it's still mind-blowing almost 10 years later. I'm sure you Australian dudes are all over that though.

Yeah, Since I Left You is the crusiest and nicest album ever. I don't really think of it as a mashup album though, even though I guess it technically is.
It's not made of popular songs, so for me it doesn't feel the same as listening to Feed The Animals where you're going 'oh I recognise that' every new sample. I tend to listen to Since I Left You the way I would any other record, it just seems to have a lot of different singers :D
