I’m listening to the most recent All Songs Considered podcast, and they’re doing a list of the best albums of the year to date. I just heard one of the most brilliant examples of sampling and mash-ups I’ve ever heard. It’s by an outfit called Girl Talk, and the track was a dizzying array of tunes. I heard Roy Orbison, Salt’n’Peppa, Nirvana, and I don’t even remember what else. All of if blending together in a delicious stew. This is apparently Girl Talk’s fourth album and I definitley plan on checking it out on iTunes later.

update: It seems Girl Talk is not on the iTMS, however the new album “Feed the Animals” is available under a Creative Commons license with a “pay what you want” price tag. Neat
