As the lights turn off on 2023 and we move into 2024 Rough Trade shops return with their annual Counter Culture series selection. The LP offers 13 tracks whilst the Double CD a full 35 tracks. All bases covered – from the chaotic party fury of Snooper to the unhinged metal of Pest Control to the beer chucking fun fest that is the Mary Wallopers, this has got everything. You got the Death Grips style Lip Critic, an 11 minute sludge workout from Slift, the future Badu soul of Liv.e and new kids on the black Lifeguard with their unique take on post punk.
As always Rough Trade Shops live and breath new music and this series stands by that.
