Girl Talk - All Day

Thanks and respect to Mr. Gregg Gillis for offering a cure for the November Monday morning blues: Seemingly out of nowhere, the mashup maestro has released another album, for free, available immediately. It’s called All Day, and is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license. Here’s a note from Gillis:

All Day is intended to be listened to as a whole.
It is broken up into individual tracks only for easier navigation.

This album is a free download.
Girl Talk thanks all artists sampled. A full list will be posted in the future.

Download All Day at Illegal Art. Servers so far are unsurprisingly sluggish, but let’s start talking about it in the comments when these zip files finally pull down, and maybe we’ll get another post up later with some highlights, notes, key MP3s, and the like. All Day all day, looks like.

  1. IT IS GOING TO BE A GOOD DAY TODAY

  2. So Far, So Good.

  3. Best so far = Gaga + Beastie Boys + Iggy Pop.

  4. ‘Every Day’ rocks! Jay Z, Fine Young Cannibals, John Lennon… fuck yeah!

  5. can’t download, goddamn.

  6. My favorite part : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCT_rlrPKfE Let It Out extract :D

  7. “Triple Double” — Rolling Stones “Paint it Black” and Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” = best part of this album

  8. I have to admit normally I am a bit underwhelmed by Girl Talk albums compared to how consistently fabulous his live show is, but Dominique Young Unique + Madness?

  9. gregg gillis yr my hero

  10. Hooray! this is so tasty

  11. Ladies and Gentlemen, today is a good day.

  12. Portishead “Sour Times” + Big Boi “Shutterbugg” ???

    Yes Please. All Day. Everyday. Forever & Ever. Amen.

  13. I’ve got to admit…Peter Gabriel + Foxy Brown + Nine Inch Nails going in to Spacehog has been my favorite part so far.

  14. General Public’s Tenderness with Jay-Z? Classic.

  15. Phoenix/Beyonce/Ludacris. Whoa.

  16. Radiohead – Creep & ODB – Shimmy Shimmy Ya is pure genius. The end bit with Thom & Dirty “harmonizing” will have me smiling all day.

  17. U2/Twista is inspired at the very least and Arcade Fire/ Birdman (I Think) is pretty sick too, this whole thing is brilliant. I like how he got a little deeper with this one, the Modern English/Jay-Z to Imagine and UGK ending is a thing of beauty. Thanks for the music GG.

  18. After listening to this a couple of times, what I am left with is how ambitious this album is. If Night Ripper and Feed the Animals were exhausting in the sheer number of songs sampled, then All Day without a doubt killed me in its staggering breath of musical mashing overload. The album is over an hour long. College kids are going to be wasted on 4 Loko before they even get to the best parts. It is almost ….ALMOST… too much. Too much music, too mashing, too much nostalgia, too much data, and too much partying. I need a nap after listening to this. I bought tickets to both nights in Pittsburgh for Girl Talk’s homecoming at the grand opening of the amphitheater next to Hienz field. I would lying if I said I am not a little worried about what this album “played” live will do to me.

    I couldn’t have said it better

  20. Thank you greg for releasing an album just a few months before I joint the moshpit and see you live right in my hometown

  21. I hate you all for being able to download this and i cannot.

  22. Kylie Minogue and Young MC? YES.

  23. After loving Night Ripper and Feed the Animals and having seen/experienced the Gillis show twice and rocking it, I was waiting for the next step. All Day feels like a step backward. The samples are too easy, too recognizable, too forced, too untethered, too dated. Sorry to break up the lovefest, but I’m disappointed. Anyone else? Or am I missing something?

    • “too recognizable”

      Yeah, I noticed that too, but I’m still enjoying this. Night Ripper is still his best though.

    • I had a hard time believing at some points that I was listening to a new album – some points just sound so much like points on previous albums. That said, my rocking out was hardly hampered.

    • I’m not sure the samples are more recognizable, they just breath a bit more. I think as far as sheer depth of music he goes a bit further here. Arcade Fire, Twista, Greatful Dead, the Ramones, Space Hog… I thought Feed the Animals was more recognizable than this one. Night Rippers was great, but to me it seemed much simpler, not as layered as these last couple. I think this is the perfect middle between the two. Just my opinion though.

  24. I need a hairy/sweaty Greg Gillis on my face.

  25. This leaves me with a really strange combination of exhaustion and boredom.

    It’s pretty fun…but loses steam pretty quickly. Of course it’s super fun to hear samples you like, but there are ones here that are not so good: like almost every classic rock or 90s alternative sample. Totally falls flat for me. Sticking to indie/90s rap would be the perfect combo for me. I do like the Wiz Khalifa/Stones combination, and the Modern English/Jay-Z part, though.

    But nothing here is as surprising as Night Rippers or hits as hard as Feed the Animals.
