2008 minus 2004 is... 4AD

For reasons I will keep to myself, I haven't had a great Christmas, and New Year's eve, once the biggest night out of the year, looks like being bleaker than you can imagine. So I'm not going to talk about any of that. Instead, let's talk about 4AD.

"4A-what now?" I hear you ask. 4AD is a record label which, when I was a young whipper-snapper, was home to such great bands as Pixies, Belly, Throwing Muses, The Breeders, and more besides. It was, and still is, a great label with a great roster of artists, currently including Bon Iver and (still) The Breeders. And guess what? Right now, they're offering you a free download of 12 songs by artists from their stable in one handy (if somewhat large) file. So go get it, from here. And despite what it says on the form you don't even have to fill in your email address (and hence get bombarded with future advertising mailshots) - look closely at the small print and you'll find a link to the download that bypasses the email address registration thing. All good then, yes - now... good songs... go get 'em...
