The Cocteau Twins – Garlands

This week we brought in the new year with some old Scottish Gothish tunes. This was the first release by Cocteau twins, came out in 1982 on the label 4AD. 4AD is now the label for loads of great and popular artists like Grimes, St. Vincent and Purity Ring and it could be argued that Cocteau Twins are who made 4AD big.

If you missed this show, please for the love of god listen to this album it is so good I can’t even handle it most of the time.

Garlands is only ~33 minutes long so I went on with the beginning of their second release, Head Over Heels.

Also in case y’all are interested, the two original band members created their own label after they all got famous called Bella Union. Bands on this label include Fleet Foxes, Beach House, The Flaming Lips and so many more it’s almost obscene.

Man. Everyone in that band sure was good at music.

Tune in next week!
