Overview

Before the proliferation of digital downloads and streaming services helped level the field of playlists and music discovery, London-based independent record retailers Rough Trade looked back on the year's best musical offerings with the Counter Culture compilation series. This tradition continues with Rough Trade Shops: Counter Culture 11, which pulls together customer favorites and staff recommendations alike over its two-CD run. The first half of the first disc eases the listener in with more relaxing fare from Josh T. Pearson's affecting alt-folk to Still Corners' cinematic psychedelia revival, turning up the volume for the second half with the likes of autumnal noise popsters Veronica Falls and dynamic electro-soul synthesists Little Dragon. The electronic sounds hinted at on the first disc carry over to the second as dubstep experimenter Zomby mingles with New Orleans bounce giant Big Freedia before giving way to fiery rock, featuring raw Danish punkers Iceage and trippy jammers White Hills. In an age where the playlist has become ubiquitous, Rough Trade continues to make the case for the discerning curator with the latest Counter Culture installment.
