Famed indie label 4AD had a hugely successful year, with the release of albums from critical heavy-hitters St. Vincent, tUnE-yArDs, Iron + Wine, and others. To celebrate these albums as well as 4AD’s bright future, look no further than their upcoming CMJ showcase.
This Saturday, October 22nd, 4AD will host their CMJ showcase at New York’s famed Bowery Ballroom. The night’s schedule includes performances by acclaimed 4AD bands Gang Gang Dance, Zomby, Inc., XXXChange and other special guests. (Who? We’ve heard rumors of someone with a new album coming out soon...)
To prepare for occasion, headliners Gang Gang Dance created an extraordinary Rdio playlist featuring “A selection of scintillating sounds from the psychedelic songsters of Gang Gang Dance” — listen in anticipation of Saturday’s soiree. And if your taste runs more electronic, or rather toward crooning, check out Zomby’s Rdio Playlist and Inc.’s Rdio Playlist, respectively.
We'll see you there, and be sure to keep your ears open for any exciting 4AD/Rdio news that might arise.
