Celebrating a generation or more in music - it's something like 41 years now - the 4AD name a label finds itself somewhere between HHV and XL Recordings when it comes to releasing such influential and contemporary music of mass appeal. As we head into a new era Bills & Aches & Blues probably sums it up best for a lot of us right now, with 4AD asking a current crop of artists to cover a song of their choosing from 4AD's past. It sees the likes of New York City's Bing and Ruth take on the Pixies or Becky and the Birds cover Bon Iver's "The Wolves Act I and II". The Birthday Party gets a mention thanks to the U.S. Girls alongside Spencer's version of Grimes "Genesis" next to remakes of Blonde Redhead, Deerhunter, Time Buckley and The Breeders. From generation to generation, long live 4AD.
