*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]
*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.
