Rough Trade Counter Culture 2019

    The annual round up of what Rough Trade loved this year is packed with more hidden gems than a Cayman Islands bank account. For those that visit Rough Trade often, you will have heard them playing them on repeat. For those of you who don't, you are in for one hell of a treat. The under-appreciated, the fledglings and the household names feature throughout this double album. This is the quintessential guide to the best new music on the horizon.

      The sixth collaboration CD between Rough Trade Shops and End of The Road Festival. As always, the tracks are selected by festival co-founder and curator Simon Taffe from artists on this year’s line up. The 18 track compilation, featuring music from Vampire Weekend, St Vincent, Gruff Rhys, Julia Holter and many more, will be available exclusively from Rough Trade Shops on 1st June before going on general release on 22nd June.

      “It always excites me to put this compilation together but condensing a whole weekend’s worth of incredible music into 74 minutes is almost impossible. What you hopefully get here is an impression, a feel for 2018 and a line up which we think has come together just right this year.” — Simon Taffe

      Behind The Counter: Max Richter

        This will be the first in Rough Trade Shops’ new Behind the Counter series, in which some of their favourite artists create mixes especially for them, using the records they sell on the shop floor.

        As big fans of Max, Rough Trade invited him to curate a mix that demonstrated his influences, knowing he’d dig up some unexpected gems. The result gives a fascinating and enriching guided tour through Richter’s musical cosmos, with insight into the sounds that help inspire his singular talent and vision.

        This 36-track compilation features music from Mogwai, Boards of Canada, Let's Eat Grandma, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Philip Glass, Aphex Twin and Low, plus classical works by Rachmaninoff and Bach.

        “This is a compilation of music I love. Some of my choices are things I’ve been listening to for decades, others are new discoveries, but feel like they belong here. I put a couple of things of mine in too - welcome to my world”, says Max.


        Barry says: This is by all measures, an astonishing collection. not only does it have the seminal classical works that you'd expect from Richter, but includes a great number of those 'What CD is this on?!' counter moments that we enjoy so much. Classic post-rock staples, beautiful electronics, heartfelt full-band odes and an education in classical music. A masterclass in curation.


        2xCD Info: CD is 2 x continuous mixes.
