Last year Gregg Gillis released All Day, his fifth album as Girl Talk. Called his most epic, densely layered and meticulously composed musical statement to date, Gillis lays down a more diverse range of samples to unfold a larger dynamic between slower transitions and extreme cut-ups. Turns out, his food taste follows suit. Since the 2008 release of his fourth album, Feed The Animals, things have flourished for Girl Talk. He's played nearly 300 shows -- without taking a full week off from the road. All that relentless touring has made him very, very hungry. Last week Gillis shared some of his favorite on-the-road eats with us -- he's a regular ol' foodie (think: Bud Light and Doritos).
