4AD SESSIONS LP VINYL 33RPM NEW
Cat no. CAD3137P
The 4AD Sessions have been documenting live performances from artists on the label's roster since its inception back in 2008. Housed at www.4ad.com/sessions, the site has since become a much bookmarked site among discerning music fans, allowing the label an in-house alternative to present their bands in both a unique and compelling way. The series began with DeerhunterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s audio-only session at Studio Plateaux on Platts Eyot Island in West London, originally inspired by the Peel Sessions archive and a desire to replicate the live experience in a creative manner. It was subsequently released as an extremely limited cassette tape, both given away at a Halloween show in their native Atlanta and through an online competition, and has since become one of the labelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most desired releases from recent years. Since then, the 4AD Sessions have grown in both scale and ambition, filmed in locations ranging from a New York studio to a club in Copenhagen to a purposefully constructed Ã¢â‚¬Ëœinfinity roomÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ in the heart of rural England, highlighting the talent that now defines the label at their very best. To celebrate the first ten sessions to air, a track from each of the sessions to date has been carefully selected to create the compilation, 4AD Sessions 2008-2011. Working with long-term visual collaborators, v23, to help turn it in to an artefact, only 1,000 copies have been pressed up on clear vinyl and once out of stock, it wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t receive a repress.
