8 Hours Chilling, Then Bed

I reviewed a book about the famous indie label 4AD–whose famous artists include the Cocteau Twins, the Pixies, and the Breeders–for Paste. Read the piece here. Below, the Cocteau Twins’ “Heaven or Las Vegas.” The vocals are handled by Elizabeth Fraser, who was dubbed “the voice of God.” Unlike many indie labels that started in the ’80s, 4AD is still going strong today. For related reading, check out this old Spin article on Kim Deal, who fronted the Breeders.
