Monday is not normally a day of the week associated with partying. I link Monday more with lame Garfield cartoons than epic nights out. It’s a bit crazy, then, that party-master Girl Talk would unexpectedly drop his latest needle-ripper smack into our laps while we’re still recovering from this weekend’s events–at 9:30 on a Monday morning, fo’ free. But doing so gives us maximum time before next weekend’s debauchery to wrap our heads around the hundreds of samples and clips contained within, allowing for plenty of opportunity to get prepared when this bumps around town come Friday night. In that respect, we should thank him, because trying to pick out all our favorite bangers over the din of a rager is never fun–and if this had dropped at 6 p.m. on a Friday, we very well may have had a party apocalypse (or “parpocalypse,” as it’s referred to in the scientific community) on our hands.
So, forgot your caffeine this morning? Download Girl Talk’s latest album All Day here, released for free yesterday morning by his label Illegal Art and currently blowing up on the ‘net. If you need any convincing of this guy’s party-master status, check out these pictures from his New Year’s Eve show in Chicago this year by Graeme Flegenheimer. Imagine the party below, but in your ears, and you’ll see what we’re talking about.
