Rough Trade's Counter Culture series has always had a habit of featuring acts that then go on to have huge success, and after sampling their latest effort, I can definitely see why. This compilation features a wide range of indie music that literally caters for every taste - regardless of what sort of music you like you will DEFINITELY enjoy at least a few of the songs on this double-disc bonanza - from Rick Tomlinson to The Horrors and even an appearance by The xx, this feature is packed full of quality music guaranteed to be enjoyed by anyone and everyone.
Don't take my word for it - buy it yourself! At a fiver it's hardly going to break the bank and you are supporting some truly brilliant musical acts rather than feeding the already rich Top 40 pop atrocities. Don't hesitate!
This is a superb collection of mostly obscure artists as only Rough Trade can deliver. Yes, there are a few who have broken through such as The Horrors, Fever Ray, The xx, The Drums etc but the vast majority of music on here is from acts that really should be listened to - Glasser, Cate le Bon, Django Django, The Very Best...I really could go on. I bought this last year when it first came out and it has been a regular on the CD player at work. Well worth the investment, led to the purchase of a few albums by the featured artists.
By buying this double album: Rough Trade Counter Culture you will be impressed while hearing to such acts like TELEPATHE,VIVIAN GIRLS,GUN OUTFIT,THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART,FLYING LOTUS...and so many more. The cream of the cream of the acts that are creatimg spaces in this tenths of this millenium.
