Mention the British record label 4AD
, and some significant band names usually come to mind: Bauhaus
, Dead Can Dance
, Cocteau Twins
, and The Birthday Party
, to name a few. There is no singular "4AD sound," but there is an overall aesthetic
, with some off-shoots into unusual territory (see: M|A|R|R|S - Pump Up The Volume
). Recently, 4AD added another off-shoot to their roster: South Florida producer and MC, SpaceGhostPurrp
. Purrp took a moment and talked with MtvHive about his decision to sign with 4AD
, his current work, and growing up in Miami. More of 4AD and SPVCXGHXZTPVRRP inside. [more inside]

Extra ordinary, every day.
Online exhibition drawn from the Bauhaus Collection at Harvard's splendid Busch-Reisinger Museum (which also includes fine holdings of Austrian Secessionism, 1920s abstraction, and German Expressionists). Fellow MeFi modernism buffs, you may start drooling...now.

Torture by Art.
'Bauhaus artists such as Kandinsky, Klee and Itten, as well as the surrealist film-maker Luis Bunuel and his friend Salvador Dali, were said to be the inspiration behind a series of secret cells and torture centres built in Barcelona and elsewhere '.
Maybe there is a future for those Turner Prize winners after all.
