brave baby mixtape

We first heard Brave Baby about about a little over a year ago here at M|H and it was love at first listen. “Lakeside Trust” is one of the best songs to have come out in the last few years, catchy as all get out. When we saw that Brave Baby was coming to Madison as part of the Communion Madison club night series we asked them to make us a mixtape. A mobile mail mishap kept us from getting their mix up before the show, but we’re pleased to present it for your enjoyment now. Eclectic and full of songs you might have forgotten you loved, let Brave Baby take you on a ride.

give me a beat

In June, Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis) released Feed the Animals for download. The 53-minute LP is another frenetic mash-up drawing on a prolific scope of musical styles. Kicking off with the Spencer Davis Group’s “Gimme Some Lovin'”, one of the most recognizable song openings in recent history, and encompassing everything from classic rock and roll tunes (Roy Orbison, Question Mark and the Mysterians) to more recent flash-in-the-pans like Soulja Boy, Feed the Animals is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and to get you up and dancing.

Girl Talk and Gillis’s label, Illegal Art, have made the album available for download at whatever price you want to pay. The album is worth at least a few dollars, and for $10 you’ll get a hard copy of the disc once it’s released on September 23. To get your copy, go to Girl Talk’s MySpace page.
