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

"Another year, another compilation of the known, the soon to be known and the soon to be forgotten. But the one thing that connects them all is that Rough Trade Shops love them. Sleeve by graffiti artist Danny Minnick. Features King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Starcrawler, Superorganism, Alvvays, Lice, Jerkcurb, Priests, Princess Nokia, Colter Wall, Flat Worms, Aldous Harding and more. The tracks are made up of shop favourites that have been on constant repeat in all five shops, obscure gems we think more people should adore, bands that blew us away whilst the Rough Trade Shop was on tour at End of the Road, Primavera etc and basically anything we wanted to put on." - Rough Trade.

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.
