new 4ad albums for spring

there was a time when most albums i bought, or brought over by friends, or bands i saw at liberty lunch or the electric lounge were all on the 4ad label.  and currently, they’ve made a pretty strong resurgence in my collection:  the national, the big pink, blonde redhead, deerhunter, camera obscura, m. ward, the mountain goats, the tindersticks.  the above album, i think is already released, the new national comes out in may and they’re touring with it, tickets going on sale this friday (presale starts tomorrow).  tindersticks came through last year, and no 2010 us dates posted yet

and just because i will always miss liberty lunch, $8 shows, cheap drinks, patio to hang out on, you could smoke, everybody came through….an austin landmark
