I’ve Just Been Falcon Punched in the Ear.

March 19, 2009
Show me your moves, indeed.

Show me your moves, indeed.

After a lengthy spring break from the Show, ably handled by my co-captains with covers, mashes, and MSPainted shutters galore, I’m back in full force. It’s Edward time, bitches. And I’ve decided that, with the extra time SB09 has given me, I’m going to be treating all ya’ll to some full album recommendations. It’s gonna be the beginning of a weekly album feature, where we try to turn you onto sweet gems, new, old, hip and forgotten. Quick! Sweep everything off your desk in a symbolic room-making gesture. It’s Show time. Animal Show time.

Coming at you first is a monsterpiece of a compositional sampling album from some sweet dudes called Super Mash Bros., who have unleashed “Fuck Bitches. Get Euros.” on the world. For the uninitiated of you, compositional sampling is the full-album kind of mash-upping, a la Girl Talk and my personal favorite, E-603. The problem is that, at this point, many of the potential matches have been played out. Hence Mash Bros. promise to be “Girl Talk’s hot cousin,” and obviously one who’s sporting sweet nineties jorts, an oversized polo, long, long blonde hair and spunky sneaks. And, like every good mash-up album, it’s got the sort of moments that make you grin with the brilliance of the pairing.

For sampling purposes, I’m providing 4 of the tracks streaming. I’ll let them more or less speak for themselves, but let me fill you in on what you’re not hearing: In “D.G.A.F.L.Y.F.”, there’s a bone-chilling mix of “Crank That” and DaRude’s deathless “Sandstorm,” which will make your grandmother break both her hips with some serious heel-toeing. In “Testarossas for Everyone!” we find yet another “Say Yeah”/”Better off Alone” mash, coming tied to Li’l Mama’s “Lip Gloss.” I should be tired of all these songs, but, damn it all if they don’t keep getting better. Also, I think the Bros should get mega points for the moment in their brilliantly-titled “Broseidon, Lord of the Brocean,” where Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek” is paired with “Tipsy,” which then transitions into “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and Death Cab’s “Title and Registration.” One other serious highlight is Modest Mouse’s “Float On” flowing into Sixpence None the Richer’s “Kiss Me,” both bouncing over “Miss New Booty,” which has me grinning ear to ear as I type. And if “I Fucking Bleed Purple and Gold” doesn’t sell you with its “Kids” vs. Eminem moment, don’t read my blog, dammit, because you obviously have feet for ears and snot for brains.

Listen, download, dance:

I’m Onto Something (That’s What She Said) – Super Mash Bros.

I Fucking Bleed Purple and Gold – Super Mash Bros.

Stop That Booty (Here We Come) – Super Mash Bros.

Meet Me at Fantasy Island – Super Mash Bros.

Download the album for free here. Listening to this album will be the best half hour of your day.

Super Mash Bros. will make you poop gold. It's a fact.

    Sample list is found on their facebook fan page, as if you needed more persuasion:

    Sold the second Missy started rapping over “One More Time”. Holy shit.
    I know it’s pretty much impossible to judge the artistic value of mash-ups like this, but when they’re this fun, who cares.
    Thanks for putting these up.

    Nice post. I’ve been looking for some new mash-ups and theses guys certainly know what they are doing.

    Nelly + Blink-182’s “What’s My Age Again” = righteous above the law!

    Agreed that it is difficult to judge artistic value of mash-ups, but they’re great for dance parties and letting go of your inhibitions 🙂
