This fall, 4AD will present the label’s first-ever tour featuring labelmates Tune-Yards and U.S. Girls who embark on a cross-country U.S. tour in support of their standout 2018 LPs. Tune-Yards’ highly acclaimed new album I can feel you creep onto my private life was released earlier this year. Entertainment Weekly called the album “politically urgent,” The New York Times praised it as “a sleek, radical evolution” and NPR Music said it’s “Tune-Yards’ most sophisticated album to date.”
U.S. Girls (aka Meg Remy)’s new album, In A Poem Unlimited, is a dancing Trojan horse for introspection. The New Yorker ran a multi-page critic’s essay on the themes of Remy’s work and Pitchfork gave it both Best New Music and Best New Track (for “Rosebud”) nods. GQ said it’s “a compulsively listenable tour de force that’s one of the best pop records of 2018 so far” and after the band, who perform as an 8-piece, sold out 3 shows in one night at NYC’s Baby’s All Right, Stereogum called their sets “a revelation.”
What to expect
