New Girl Talk equals people attempting to identify all the samples on the album. Check it out real-time here or you can just read about it on the Wikipedia page. It’s pretty impressive, I have to say. I mean, the album just came out on Monday and there is a ridiculous amount of samples. Well done, internet!
Xmas is coming up fast and The Boy Least Likely To have put together a lovely Xmas album titled, “Christmas Special” and you will be able to get it via iTunes on the 30th. You can pick up one track in exchange for your email at their site. It is pretty much what you would expect a Xmas song from them to sound like – poppy, charming and, if you listen closely, kind of heartbreaking. Pretty appropriate for Xmas, I’d say.
Not everyone is down with Target, but I love the joint. (This may or may not have something to do with the fact that I have never lived anywhere that had a Target store.) Keeping with the Xmas theme here, the red bullseye has put together a little Xmas album of their own, and it’s not too shabby. Best Coast and Wavves tag team it up on one track, but there is also some Crystal Antlers and some Chief Xcel, amongst many more. You can currently listen to it here, and will be able to download it on the 28th.
