4AD is offering a sampling of tracks from their releases in 2009. This is a perfect opportunity for me to explain how wonderful 4AD is, but that would appear like a promotional scheme. Instead, I’ll just state “4AD is wonderful.” Happy? I strongly urge you to download these tracks as I’ve discussed almost all of these bands at some point this year. My particular favorites are St. Vincent, Atlas Sounds, The Big Pink and Anni Rossi, but let me know which ones you prefer.
