I'm not YET getting fed-up of wangling a festive angle every time anyone gives away something in the month of December, honest! Regardless, it can only be GOOD NEWS that the people at one of the finest labels in the land, 4AD, have decided to dip into their 2009 archives and release a sampler of their best releases of the year.
Featuring a heck of a lot of bands/artists whose songs featured in our Top 50 Albums Of The Year List and a couple which didn't, but no harm, they're still hella good.
You can get or listen to this collection by clicking here. Sign up to the mailing list and THEN you can get all the tracks to download onto your very own HARD DRIVE OR IPOD OR SUMMAT like that anyway.
Or check out another embedded media player on the be-low.
Enjoy. Let's hope 4AD bring more goodies our way in 2010.
