A Masterful Mash

This week's All Songs Considered NPR podcast introduced me to the "group" Girl Talk, who actually just happens to be one guy who cuts up other peoples' songs and mixes them together. This is by no means a new phenomenon, but his new album "Feed the Animals" is phenomenal.

And as long as we're on the topic, NPR has started a new feature that they're calling "Tiny Desk Concerts," where an artist plays a live show in their office. In the video of the concert featuring Laura Gibson, my friend Stephen Thompson actually makes an appearance to explain how he got her to agree to do the show. And she is outstanding, incidentally - well worth the listen.
