One of the most renowned and acclaimed indie labels, namely 4AD, have released a compilation of
current artists performing live in the studio. 4AD Sessions were launched back in 2008 with Deerhunter’s installment and have been going on quite regularly since then. (Following the noble example of the late John Peel’s Peel Sessions recorded by the BBC.)
A1. Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti ‘Menopause Man’
A2. Blonde Redhead ‘Here Sometimes’
A3. Twin Shadow ‘Forget’
A4. Gang Gang Dance ‘Chinese High’
A5. Deerhunter‘Never Stops’
B1. tUnE-yArDs ‘Powa’
B2. Efterklang ‘I Was Playing Drums’
B3. Broken Records ‘Home’
B4. Stornoway ‘Here Comes The Blackout’
B5. Iron & Wine ‘Big Burned Hand’
4AD saw the moment appropriate to release an essence of these performances in the form of ‘4AD Sessions 2008-2011’ as extra-limited – and stunningly beautiful – vinyl and as a free download.
