Girl Talk: Speed Listening

While most artists worry about penning original lyrics to marry with moving melodies, Girl Talk takes things a few steps further, perfectly content with 10-second sampling rhythms, beats, hooks and verses that traverse decades and even genres. This prodigy of the school of music achieves this lofty goal so utterly flawlessly, that on Feb. 5 at the Wellmont Theatre, you’ll have no idea how Big Boi succeeded Miley Cyrus, or how Lady Gaga, Radiohead and Beastie Boys coexist, but you will know that you will never think of music the same way again.
