Dance Music is a Misnomer

There are only two acceptable ways to listen to tracks from Girl Talk's new album Feed the Animals at two in the morning. One of these is to be at some sort of non-stop party dancing one's ass off, getting crunk, etc.

The other is to be reading the album's ridiculously long Wikipedia page, following along with the mind-boggling array of samples and periodically breaking out in laughter at an unexpected bit from Yo La Tengo or the Cranberries or Temple of the Dog.

Those who know me well may be able to deduce which of those categories I fall into.

(That cover art is fairly awesome, no?)

Update: Hey now! The whole thing's streaming on Greg Gillis's MySpace page! What a fun record.
