Video: Bon Iver’s 4AD session
St Vincent, looking incredibly glam, is the latest performer in 4AD’s video sessions; following on from other TMS faves Stornoway, Broken Records and Gang Gang Dance. This session, recorded at Shangri-La in Brooklyn features Annie Clark plus new band and songs from latest LP Strange Mercy. Did I say she’s totes glammed up in this session?

Hitting* the internets to support the release of their fourth LP Eye Contact is this session from Gang Gang Dance, recorded in sleepy Englandshire in a 20ft mirrored room. Wait what?
A derelict chapel off the Old Kent Road seems to be an appropriate venue for this sixth 4AD session, featuring perennial TMS favourites Broken Records. As you’d expect, the video, directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, is all moody atmosphere, dark shades picked out with flashes of brightness (including the church’s stained glass windows), and it matches the prevailing tone of the group’s second record. Watch the recording of “You Know You’re Not Dead” below, and find a link to the full session below.
The session is also being offered as a tie in to the 11th January US release of Broken Records’ 2nd LP Let Me Come Home (which has been out here in Europe since, gosh, ages ago. I think it just took that long for the ship to sail across the Atlantic).
The ever-charming Stornoway have recorded a session for 4AD in the rotunda in their hometown of Oxford, which those kind chaps and chapesses have unleashed onto the interwebs for you to watch at your leisure!
