4AD is a British label which has a lot of "Alternative" acts, some might categorize them as gothic or similar. My experience is mainly with the Dead Can Dance catalog, though I have a few others (can't remember which ones though), they all have good sound, some real good, but it has been a while since I have listened to them so I'll have to be a little vague. As far as music goes, the earlier Dead Can Dance is a little less accessible compared to their most recent (and sadly, last) CD Spiritchaser. The two principals, Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, have both put out solo albums which haven't strayed too far from the sound of Dead Can Dance. You might want to check them out.
