Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is home to six-time Super Bowl champs (let’s disregard Sunday night’s unfortunate loss), 446 bridges (that’s three more than Venice, “The City of Bridges,” can boast), one of the ModCloth offices (an online clothing retailer you should definitely check out), and Gregg Gillis, a twentysomething yinzer known as Girl Talk. We could go on, citing the many other awesome people, places, and things relevant to Pennsylvania’s second-largest city, but for the sake of time, we’ll focus on today’s hottest Pittsburgh news: the release of Girl Talk’s fifth album.
If you’re unfamiliar with the genre-mashing, beat-heavy frenzy of Girl Talk’s music, hit up the free download of All Day, Girl Talk’s latest album. Like the house party anthems omnipresent in Girl Talk’s four former albums, All Day aims to please listeners with samples of everything from Electric Light Orchestra and Prince to Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” – each cleverly cut, chopped and curated alongside a cacophony of goofy beats and lengthy sequences.
In 2008, we declared Gregg Gillis a ModMan of the Year, and we continue to stick by this decision. With a steady release of entertaining electronic albums every two years since 2002’s Secret Diary, we’re anxiously awaiting for 2012. Until then, All Day is here to please!
