Leak Out

posted by on June 13 at 12:10 PM

Has anyone else heard the leaked fake version of Feed the Animals, the recently announced sophomore full-length from Girl Talk?

IT IS SOOOO BAD!

It’s like what a kindergartner with Ableton Live would make in an hour after just learning about the concept of a mash-up. (Note to Girl Talk haters: I know, I know, you think that’s no different than what Gregg Gillis does; go play “Through the Fire and Flames” on Guitar Hero again.)

So, yes, this means I’ve been trolling around for a leaked copy of Feed the Animals, I’m not too proud to admit that. But what if—and this thought has really started to shake me—what if it’s not really a fake leak at all? What if it’s the real Girl Talk album, and it just sounds like Hollertronix mixing Top 40 following a massive stroke?

WHERE IS GIRL TALK AT? HURRY UP!

Are you sure it's a fake?

Um, half this post is about how I'm worried that maybe it's not, so, if I had to guess, based only on reading words and interpreting what they mean, I would guess that, no, I'm not sure.

I'll be bummed out if it's not, though.

if girl talk were smart, he'd leak an absurdly bad fake version of his own album.

'losing my edge' "i was there" moment:
when girl talk was in high school, he was part of a circuit bending / prankster group called the joysticks. i saw one of their final shows (at a skating rink), which consisted of an elaborate stage set up of old tv's and stereo equipment. they played a modified version of the a-team theme on a boombox, lit the stage set up on fire and threw full sized watermelons at the crowd. i haven't seen him since he blew up with the kids, but i don't think he can top a stunt like that...

It's fake; been the same fake since March. You probably listened to this dude's tracks instead: http://www.myspace.com/speakymusic

Personally, I thought Speaky's stuff has its moments--but you gotta wade through the first 15 mins before the guy works up some momentum (something I'd actually say about the bootleg Girl Talk Block Party MP3s from last year, actually).
