    Girl Talk Releases Pay-What-You-Want LP - Just like Radiohead, only with hundreds of uncleared samples

    Girl Talk dropped his latest disc in digital formats today through the Web site of his label, www.illegal-art.net. Available in a pay-what-you-want plan, the album contains high-quality MP3s no matter what price your choose, but offers a few plusses for high rollers: an uncompressed, unmixed version for $5 or more, and an additional physical CD version come September 23 for $10 or more. If you pay nothing, Illegal Art's site asks you to give a reason. Among the choices: "I may donate later," "I can't afford to pay" and our personal favorite, "I don't believe in paying for music."

    Fourteen tracks, 300 samples and more than 50 minutes of music are crammed into the effort, including nods to Lil Wayne, The Police, Metallica, Hot Chip, Britney Spears, Nirvana, and Michael Jackson. All we've got to say is you better be thanking your Creative Commons license right now, buddy.
