In keeping with his own tradition of giving away music, Gregg Gillis, better known to the world as Girl Talk, has released his fifth album, All Day, for free download today. 2008's Feed the Animals came with a similar purchasing premise -- the famed Radiohead-style "pay-as-you-wish" option -- but this release is an absolute, no questions asked free download.
Earlier this year, Girl Talk also released a short film documenting his massive New Year's Eve celebratory performance in Chicago in 2009. The three-part piece is free as well, available for viewing in full via YouTube. If you've never witnessed Girl Talk live, click through for a short clip that captures the magic in Gillis' ability to make his laptop mash-ups come to life in an awesome, tangible way. If you like what you see, catch Girl Talk on March 11, 2011 at the Ogden Theatre.
