In 2009, The Size Queens were commissioned by University of Chicago; Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles; ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany; and Princeton University to produce a “pedagogical concept album” for the art/performance conference “Our Literal Speed.” This “soundtrack” includes songs that irreverently reference the contemporary art world: art history’s grande dame, scholar Rosalind Krauss (“Reading Rosalind Krauss”); preeminent sculptor Lynda Benglis (“Bang! Bang! Lynda Benglis!”); and 1980s performance artists (“My Lover is a Body Artist”). In addition, the songs “Disco Cotton Ball” and “I Hate Lasik” round out the new material that is situated alongside 8 favorite songs from the band’s second (“Magic Dollar Shoppe”) and third (“The Size Queens III”) records. “Our Literal Speed” was produced as a limited-edition, residual media compact disc available only to conference participants.
