Happy Music Monday! 4AD is one of the most legendary record labels, covering so many different genres and artists. Even today they're still around, and still doing really cool stuff. But when they started, alternative wasn't a thing, and pop songs like this weren't as widely accepted as they are now. 4AD was important to many of us for that reason, the "Crayons to perfume" of our teenage years. And the music they made still holds up.
It was a super hard decision to make, deciding how to start this post. I chose Song To The Siren because it's so famous, and it represents a magical moment in the label's history. But I could also have easily picked this song or this song or even this song instead. There's just so much to love in 4AD's catalog, both old and new. It's just that this cover of a Tim Buckley song is really the moment the whole world noticed 4AD was something special. So I started here.
