Girl Talk (Gregg Gillis), by contrast, uses Billboard chart fodder (and '60s psych-rockers the Creation) as funhouse springboards to forge his demented sampledelia. Like Kid606's The Action-Packed Mentalist Brings You the Fuckin' Jams, Girl Talk's Unstoppable (Illegal Art) accelerates beats, distorts textures, pitches up flows, and sets up strange juxtapositions to render absurd the sexed-up aura of hip-hop and dance pop. Flouting copyright law with impunity, Girl Talk gleefully recontextualizes recordings ("Shake that azz, bitch, and let me see what you got" is the general level of discourse here) to create a hella-rad party album for post-postmodern pseudo-ironists. This joint record release party should be off the hook -- and full of them.
