Thank you.

Links for 6.21.08: Girl Talk’s +/-, top albums of the last 25 years, exploring the Afronaut…

*Stereogum (Universal) interviews Greg Gillis about the new “Feed the Animals” Girl Talk album: “I only had one guy on my MySpace talking shit, so that was cool.” (Off topic: I am fascinated by the usage of “my MySpace” vs. “my MySpace page.”)

*On the flip side: The New Republic brings the hate against such sampling: “It is a colossal mistake to coerce an expression of others into an expression of ourselves.” (For what it’s worth, this blog is nothing but a remix of my feedreader and e-mail inbox. Also, coercing the expression of others into the expression of ourselves is the basis of language.) [catbird seat]

*Lists: Entertainment Weekly‘s take on the top albums from 1983-2008: #1. Purple Rain, #12. Stankonia. [largehearted boy]

*Afronauts: Slate asks why so many black musicians have been obsessed with outer space. I am reluctant to admit that I didn’t even know David Bowie was black. [fluxtumblr]

*Japanese youths flip for mini-karaoke. [ypulse]

*Lily Allen posts a chunk of a new song on her MySpace page. Refreshing in that it is not a difficult-to-understand blog post.

*Video: Low + “You May Need a Murderer” from Pitchfork.tv. I have a hard time embedding Pitchfork.tv videos. Due to my own incompetence.

*The Shins are leaving SubPop and self-releasing their next album. Also, they will change your life. Or so I hear. [universal]

Video: Chocolate 7″ records (edible) from InnerPartySystem

The band InnerPartySystem has combined two of my favorite things – soothing phonographs and being a lard-ass – by pressing 100 edible chocolate 7″ records (and making a video of it). [switchblade comb]
